Get waxed at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
It's the weekend, it is raining, and the kids are complaining...you need a break!

Madame Tussauds Sydney is definitely the place to visit.
I was actually surprised on how much fun I had here; it was certainly not what I expected.

Captain Cook


You will be amazed on how many things there are to do here besides staring at famous celebrities and you won't even notice that the kids are with you! There are many interactive activities to do, such as dressing up as an historian, spinning books to reveal our beautiful country's history, stepping into Ned Kelly's armour or shaking Captain Cook's hand as you exchange maps. Maybe you would like to take the throne in Queen Elizabeth's chair...

Our past Leaders


Almost all the wax figures look identical to the real life person, from their facial expressions to their height.

The museum is also filled with informative history ranging from Captain Cook's arrival, Aboriginal history, Australia's famous poets, writers, criminals, sport legends etc.
