The weekend before this year's TCM Classic Film Festival I enjoyed a visit to Madame Tussauds with a few other classic film bloggers.
Madame Tussauds is located on Hollywood Boulevard, near the Chinese Theatre. Guests take an elevator to the top of three floors and then follow a path through the exhibits, gradually circling back down to the ground floor.
The wax museum has a mixture of recent and older film stars; I believe there were more from the classic film era, but there were also a significant number of newer stars, such as Brad and Angie...
...and Meryl Streep.
I hadn't been in a wax museum in decades so it was an interesting experience. I "live Tweeted" many photos during the visit but thought I'd also share some here.
Some of the figures are eerily lifelike, while some aren't quite as successful. Here's a look at a few:
This one was so lifelike it was almost spooky, you'd swear Steven Spielberg was standing right there looking at you!
We spent a pleasant hour here and had fun looking around. I thought the full-price ticket was on the steep side relative to the time we spent there, but the website has a very nice discount for tickets purchased in advance. We were also offered discount coupons when we were walking nearby so that's a possible option for potential visitors as well.
Sincere thanks to Madame Tussauds for providing a complimentary admission ticket.
