Bangkok's Madam Tussauds Wax Museum


Bangkok, known as the shopping capital of the world due to it's large number of shopping malls, markets and shops is not only a haven for shopping.  Well, that's also what I thought before I came to visit this amazing city in Thailand.  I discovered that apart from being a shopping paradise, Bangkok is also home to many attractions such as parks, museums and temples.  On our second day at Bangkok, we took the chance to visit Madam Tussauds Wax Museum located on the 6th Floor of Siam Discovery right at the heart of Bangkok.

Madam Tussauds is a home to over 90 wax figures distributed on 10 zones.  Inside the museum, you will get that chance to see, touch and even have a photo taken with your famous international celebrities.  Political leaders, artists and international showbiz personalities were among the subject of the wax figures and you may be surprised that they appeared to be there "for real" as the wax figures were made exactly how these personalities are, copying exactly their facial features, hair, skin tone, eyes, physique... everything!

Here are some of our photos taken inside the museum:



Me, posing with a known political leader.  Can you recognize him?


Below, my daughter grabbing a chance to sit on Queen Elizabeth's throne. I bet, you could feel that excitement wearing that Royal crown (lol)




Below, a photo of my daughter with the famous artist, Picasso



Here are more of our favorites!


Hmmm...me with Brad Pitt?







How about posing with your favorite sports personalities?





And how about seeing yourself giving a speech on TV?


These are just some of the many exciting things that you can see and experience inside the Madam Tussauds Wax Museum.  I think you should prepare extra batteries for your cameras and cell phones as well as extra memory cards as you will never ran out of exciting photo opps with all your favorite stars.

You can also end up your visit to Madam Tussauds by grabbing some souvenir items at the museum's souvenir shop located near the exit.  Prices ranging from THB50 to THB500.



So if you happen to visit Bangkok and you want to experience a different excitement, apart from shopping of course, then you can have a visit to Madam Tussauds Wax Museum.  It is ideally located right inside the Siam paragon mall and near to MBK mall so, it's not really out of the way if you want to experience a different kind of fun.

Tips :  The entrance ticket to the museum is being sold at Siam Paragon at a discounted price of THB680.  It's original price is THB800.  But I got my tickets from the hotel's tours and travel office and it's much cheaper at THB550.  If you want, you will also have the option to buy a combo ticket at a much cheaper price and that includes a visit to Siam Ocean World located on the same building.

  20. Wax figures at some museum looks scary. Good thing you guys are allowed to take photos of them because back at my school days, we aren't allowed to take a single photo due to some reasons.
