At a distance of 2.5 km from Lumpini Park, 7 km from Grand Palace, and 28 km from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Madame Tussauds is a wax museum located in the Siam Discovery Center in Siam area of Bangkok. It is one of the popular wax museums in the World and among the top places to visit in Bangkok.
Established in 2010, Bangkok's Madame Tussauds is the 10th Madam Tussauds museum in the World which gives you a chance to pose with the wax statues of world celebrities, heads of state, activists, sports persons, legendary artists, and even royalty. Divided into 10 sections as Red Carpet, Music, History, Film, Leaders, Art & Science, TV and Sports, it has a collection of nearly 70 wax statues of famous persons including Madonna, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Beethoven, famous film stars along with some Thai important persons.
Of the 10 sections, the most elegant and famous is the Royal Room as it displays the wax figures of His Royal Highness, Prince Mahitala Thibed Adulyadej and Her Royal Highness, 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. A controversial political personality, Chairman Mao seems to get more attention from visitors than Princess Diana or Queen Elizabeth II. But the most photographed is probably a section of the Oval Office, with the U.S. President and First Lady posing by the festoon curtains.
