Madame Tussauds Interactive Wax Museum in Las Vegas

Updated on March 24, 2011

The world-famous wax museum is now in Las Vegas

Madame Tussaud's wax museums are famous around the world, and now there's one right on the Las Vegas Strip at the Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian. What's great about this wax museum is that so many of the figures are interactive. You can take pictures with them, touch them, and some will even respond to you in some ways. For instance, you can whisper a secret into Jennifer Lopez's ear (probably a remark about her rear) and watch her blush.

Some of the famous celebrities who have been found at the Madame Tussaud's in Las Vegas include Elvis Presley (we're talking older Elvis here, when he was a bit more bloated and sweaty and had sideburns -- the only thing missing is a toilet and an exploding heart), Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt (Jennifer Aniston, where are you?), Tiger Woods (17 random blondes somehow missing), Shaq, Simon Cowell, Bono, and many others. 

How much is admission?

First, you have to understand that these are not just sculptures made by some hobbyists. These are done by professionals and take hundreds of hours to create. Each one costs a couple hundred thousand dollars. That said, I think Madame Tussaud's is a remarkable deal for Las Vegas. It's $25 for general admission, with discounts for seniors and children. Children 6 and under get in free. In addition, they have some great package deals. The romance package is $60 and includes admission, 1 ticket on the gondola ride at the Grand Canal Shoppes, and a meal ticket for your choice of two excellent restaurants at the Venetian. Get one for you and one for your significant other and for $120 you've got an excellent day in Las Vegas.

For $40 you get one admission, a guidebook, and one outdoor ride on the gondola.

The museum is open from 10 until 10, although you'll want to check ahead to make sure they are open because they do sometimes close for special events like weddings.
