Madame Tussauds London, London: 141 reviews and 201 photos
Madame Tussaud's is a wax museum with an incredible (and morbid) history. Her illustrious career began in the 18th century, when she started taking death masks of prisoners about to be executed. Don't ask me why.
Her work eventually progressed to wax models of celebrities and notables, continuing after her death, and today the museum is loaded with dozens of uncannily realistic old and modern celebrities. The celebs range from Steven Spielberg to Henry VIII, from Adolf Hitler to the Rock, and stand freely about the museum so that you can see them up close, have your picture taken with them, and tell them that you thought they were really great in Be Cool.
There is also a gruesome Chamber of Horrors and a fantastic trip through time to experience 'Old London' in a miniaturized London cab. I particularly enjoyed this last bit and recommend it for the whole family (unlike the Chamber of Horrors, which is be a bit scary for children). The show is cheapest in the evening, so I'd suggest the 5pm show. Be there in plenty of time to queue up and grab a ticket!
