Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

In 2014, the Madame Tussauds Museum opened to replace the old San Francisco Wax Museum, which was known for the dubious quality of its creations.

The renovation of the museum cost more than 35 million dollars.

The Museum at a Glance

If you're a fan of wax museums, Madame Tussauds is the perfect place for you to visit. It's divided into six areas. One of the most popular area's is the 'A-List Zone', which displays waxworks of some of the most popular modern-day figures, such as Peter Kinklage from Game of Thrones, Neil Patrick, who plays Barney Stinson in How I Met Your Mother, and the presenter Jimmy Fallon.

In the 'Spirit of San Francisco' area, you'll find waxworks of people who are no longer with us, but that changed the history of the city, such as Robin Williams and Jimi Hendrix.

With San Francisco being one of the most technologically advanced city's on the planet, there is also a nod to that with figures such as Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs.

A Museum in Keeping with the City

With is reopening, San Francisco finally has a wax museum that is in keeping with the grandeur of the city, with both historic and current stars and personalities.

When Madame Tussauds opened, it also opened San Francisco Dungeon which is a fun experience that tells you about the history of the city whilst scaring and entertaining you. If you are interested in both the dungeon and the wax museum, there are combo ticket available.
