Madame Tussauds first opened its doors in 1835 in London, and has nearly 200 years of heritage. Each figure at the attraction is created using the expertise of sculptors who use the same techniques as the famous Marie Tussaud.
It takes three months for a team of 25 skilled artists, including make-up artists, wax artists, hair stylists and sculptors, to create one wax figure! During this time they document 500 precise body measurements, insert real hair strand by strand, apply countless layers of paints to build up the skin tones, and more.
It is situated on Bluewaters Island, Dubai. Ticket Prices start at AED 135 for adults, AED 110 for children 3 to 11, while under 3s are free. The attraction is open from 12pm to 8pm (last entry 7.45pm) from Sunday to Thursday, and on Friday, Saturday & Public Holidays it’s 10am-8pm (last entry 7.45pm).
