Disclosure: We received free tickets from Madame Tussauds in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
While D was busy at the Adobe Summit, the kids and I had a lot of free time. We decided to check out Madame Tussauds Wax Museum located in The Venetian Hotel. This was the first time we have ever visited a wax museum.
The idea of a wax museum has always sounded kind of creepy, but fascinating at the same time. k is supposed to do a wax museum project for school where she dresses up as a historical figure, so this was a good experience for her.
The likenesses of the celebrities definitely had me doing double-takes.
There are a ton of good photo opportunities! This museum is pretty hands-on; no velvet ropes that you need to stand behind.
Warning: a couple of the scenes were rated PG-13, i.e. not very "family-friendly". This is Vegas, after all. I quickly scooted the kids to the next scene.
Since our kids are not very aware about celebrity culture, they did not recognize most of the figures. However, if you are into celebrities, this would be a fun place to visit. Where else can you have your picture taken with the likenesses of George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Shaquille O'Neal?
The kids' favorite part of the museum was watching the 4D Marvel movie at the end. Although it was only about ten minutes long, I thought it was a nice addition that added value to the price of the museum ticket.
