Madame Tussauds review

Updated on:

On a recent trip to Sentosa, I decided to visit the world-famous Madame Tussauds wax museum. As a pop culture fan, I was so excited for the chance to see hyper-realistic wax figures of my favorite celebrities up close and snap selfies.

Madame Tussauds delivered big time, with stunningly detailed figures spanning music, sports, film, and beyond that looked incredibly lifelike.

Stepping Into the Glamour

Madame Tussauds is conveniently located right on Sentosa Island, so I arrived by cable car. After purchasing my ticket, I entered the attraction’s sleek galleries ready to spot A-listers. Right away, the impressive figures and interactive sets impressed. Posing on a red carpet next to a waxwork of superstar singer Rihanna set the tone for the glitzy experience ahead.

Coming Face-to-Face With Stars

Room after room, I was stunned by just how real all the wax celebs looked – right down to their skin textures, expressions, and outfits. I really felt like I was just inches away from the actual celebrities. Some like Angelina Jolie were so lifelike I had to resist the urge to say hello!

From singers like Lady Gaga to actors such as Jackie Chan and sports legends like Cristiano Ronaldo, the figures spanned a star-studded range. I loved admiring small details like Tom Cruise’s laugh lines up close. The photo opportunities were endless.

Local Singaporean Talent Too

In between snapping selfies with global celebs, I also enjoyed spotting Madame Tussauds’ wax figures of favorite homegrown Singaporean stars. Figures of folk hero Uncle Sim and beloved actor/comedian Jack Neo added local flair.

Interesting sets like an old school Singapore classroom and army bunk let me get imaginative with the Singapore personality figures. It was nice to see exhibits tailored specifically to Singaporean culture at this global attraction.

An Interactive Experience

Beyond photos, Madame Tussauds included interactive zones that really immersed visitors in the worlds of film, music, sports, and more. I had fun dipping and swaying with the figures on a giant surfboard and strumming a guitar alongside rock legends.

The lively Spirit of Singapore boat ride was a patriotic way to end my experience. I left Madame Tussauds feeling like I had walked through a hall of fame spanning generations.

Must-Visit Sentosa Attraction

For any pop culture junkie visiting Singapore, Madame Tussauds’ incredible wax figures are a sight not to miss. I was thoroughly impressed by the hyper-realistic likenesses and clever interactive elements. If you want to get up close with the stars, this tribute to celebrity is an absolute must-visit Sentosa attraction.
