In 1795 Marie married François Tussaud, but she left him in 1802 so she could tour around Britain together with her assortment of dying masks. The nasty roadshow incorporated the dying masks from the French king Louis XVI and the wife Marie-Antoinette. Tussaud’s collection affirmed the disdain from the British audience for France’s bloodthirsty revolutionaries and it was a large hit. Marie Tussaud never came back to France.
In 1835, after greater than three decades touring the nation, she produced a lasting exhibit on Baker Street. There is a surcharge for that famous Chamber of Horrors, another chamber most abundant in horrifying displays of crooks and victims from the French Revolution. Meanwhile, Marie Tussaud added many likenesses to her collection.
In 1884, several decades after her dying, Madame Tussaud’s wax museum gone to live in its current location on London’s Marylebone Road, where millions have was in queue for hrs to obtain a glimpse at her work which of her successors.
The present museum endured a fireplace in 1925 and lots of statues were lost. However, the molds continued to be intact and some of the pieces were recreated. Regrettably countless molds were destroyed throughout the Blitz at the beginning of world war ii. Ironically among the surviving masks is Hitler, that was produced in 1933.

The museum began a foreign expansion in 1970, if this opened up a branch location in Amsterdam. Today it’s expanded to a lot of more metropolitan areas including Vegas, New You are able to City, Hong Kong, Washington Electricity and Hollywood.
Madame Tussauds London Vlog 28th January 2017
Rebecca Rost: best video of M. T's I've seen!
Coaster Crazy: Rebecca Rost thank you
Gypsymuffin: Never been to MT, but it looks good. Don't fancy those queues though! Nice vid.
Oliver White: Yeah nice Vlog of MT.\nI used to work there, the best times to come is obviously during the week, but if you come in the winter during the week the attraction only admits about 1000 a day compared to 10,000-13,000 at the weekends and during the summer.\nIf you don't have a choice and have to come during the weekend then arrive after 4.30 in the afternoon the attraction starts to die down.\n\nThese rules pretty much apply to the whole London cluster apart from the London Eye.
