Madame Tussauds Sydney

Madame Tussauds Sydney is a walk from Rydges World Square, located on the city side of Darling Harbour next to the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. Firstly, to answer one frequently asked question – yes, take your camera/phone – you are more than welcome to take photos with the wax figures and don’t be shy – you can throw an arm around them or strike pretty much any pose you like. You won’t damage the figures and you will get a great keepsake!

Madame Tussauds first opened in London in 1836 and the secret to the museum’s enduring success is good, old-fashioned curiosity. We all like getting up close with the rich, the powerful and the famous. There are nine ‘zones’ in Madame Tussauds Sydney and they are:

In the History Zone you can don a sailor’s hat with Captain Cook, get into some aviation clobber to pose with Sir Charles Kingsford Smith and become Ned Kelly’s partner in crime… In the Leaders Zone you will find spiritual and political leaders like the Dalai Lama and you can interact with Julia Gillard, take a seat with the Queen or pose with Barack Obama in the Oval office (throw your feet up on the desk – he has someone to clean it for him)…

The Sport Zone is home to a varied lot of achievers like Don Bradman, Shane Warne, Layne Beachley and Cathy Freeman. Here you can stand on the Olympic podium with Dawn Fraser, sit in a replica F1 car with Mark Webber, challenge Lleyton Hewitt in a game of Wii tennis or take a putt to attempt a hole in one with Greg Norman…

The Music Zone has plenty of iconic stars like Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue and Ricky Martin. Pose with your very own guitar and hat beside legendary Slim Dusty, rock on an electric guitar with Jimmy Barnes, moonwalk with Michael Jackson or shake it off with Taylor Swift…

In the Culture Zone you can meet Eddie Mabo, pose with Henry Lawson and Banjo Patterson or test your science knowledge with a touch screen quiz at Albert Einstein… In the TV Zone you might like to be interviewed by Rove McManus or Oprah or star with Home and Away’s Alf Stewart, Neighbour’s Harold Bishop or Edna Everage…

It’s lights, camera and action in the Film Zone– you can act up with iconic film stars in a movie themed studio – dress up as Marilyn Monroe in her iconic white dress, sit with Audrey Hepburn for breakfast at Tiffany’s, jump on the BMX with E.T. or pose with Crocodile Dundee…

Join the A-List Zone with your besties – Miranda Kerr, Ryan Gosling, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Rhianna, Johnny Depp and P!nk (in her own heart-shaped funhouse)… And, in the Marvel Super-Hero Zone come face-to-face with Spiderman, Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Iron Man and Wolverine’s amazing foot-long Adamantium claws!

Madam Tussauds Sydney is open from 9:30am to 8:00pm daily with the last admission at 7.00pm. Here is a link to the official Madame Tussauds Sydney website for more information.
