Located in the Siam Discovery Center, Madame Tussauds Bangkok is no old-fashioned wax museum.
Here, you will have the chance to come up close to celebrities, world leaders and sporting heroes. Pose for photos and hang out with international celebrities at Madame Tussauds Museum in the heart of Bangkok. With 10 exhibit rooms decked out in real-life themes, the museum feels more like a journey from one time-warp to the next – Lady Di next to Mao Zedong, Pablo Picasso and his Cubist painting next to Thailand’s leading and somewhat eccentric forensic pathologist Dr. Porntip Rojanasunan in her full rock star regalia, Barak and Michelle Obama in their Oval Office next to Aung San Suu Kyi and the Dalai Lama.
Out of the 10 rooms, The Royal Room is the most elegant and culturally significant, as it showcases the wax figures of HRH Prince Mahitala Thibet Adulyadej and HRH Princess Srinagarindra, the late parents of His Majesty the King. All the decorative elements in this room are meticulously planned down to the tiniest details, whether the royal costumes, colour scheme, floral graphic patterns, and music, all of which received the Royal endorsement from the Thai Royal family. This is the only room in which you are not allowed to touch the figures.
Learn all there is to know about the famous wax museum and discover how the lifelike sculptures are created. The museums’ souvenir boutique carries an interesting collection of memorabilia and quirky accessories you might want to bring home with you.
