An iconic wax museum named after its founder, Marie Tussaud, who made the first figures herself, dates back to the second half of the 18th century. Among the first figures that Marie made were e.g. Voltaire and Benjamin Franklin.
Today, you can find Madame Tussauds museums all over the world. They display wax doppelgangers of well known historical figures, artists, scientists and philosophers as well as celebrities or movie characters. The visitors are encouraged to pose with their favourite figures and take pictures. The figures are often arranged so that the visitors could join them in a group for a cool picture.
In Prague, you can meet your favorite celebrities such as Taylor Lautner, Will Smith, and Lady Gaga. Some of the floors of this wax museum are dedicated to Czech history, so don't be surprised if you encounter a Bohemian king Charles IV or the first President of Czechoslovakia, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk.
