Since I saw my facebook friend’s album post when she went to Hong Kong with her family, I’ve been curious with the wax figures she had selfies with. So that afternoon in our second day in the country, we decided to come visit this wax figure museum popularly known as Madame Tussauds.
Madame Tussauds first opened in London in 1835 but long before that, Marie Grosholtz — the French artist known for her wax sculptures — was already exhibiting her works 7 years after she married François Tussaud in 1795. That’s more than 200 years in the making. Now, Madame Tussauds had been sprouting up all over the world. In the year 2000, Madame Tussauds opened in Hong Kong.
We took as many pictures as we can since that’s the point why we visited Madame Tussauds. Who wouldn’t take the opportunity to have selfies with the celebrities, greatest musicians and artist of the 20th century? Not us! So without further ado, let me give you a glimpse to some of the photos we took. Enjoy!
HOW TO GET THERE
🚈 Via MTR
Go to Central Station, Exit J2. Walk for about 10 minutes to the Peak Tram Lower Terminus along Garden Road. From the lower ground, you still have to ride the tram going to The Peak. The ride will take about 10 minutes.
COMBO PACKAGES (Fast Lane)
Peak Tram (Roundtrip) + Madame Tussauds:
- Adult — HKD 315 (approx. Php 2,020)
- Child / Senior — HKD 215 (approx. Php 1,380)
Peak Tram (Roundtrip) + Madame Tussauds + Sky Terrace
- Adult — HKD 335 (approx. Php 2,150)
- Child / Senior — HKD 235 (approx. Php 1,440)
To be honest — the time we spent waiting for our turn to finally ride that tram that would take us to The Peak, where Madame Tussauds is located, was almost an hour. Take note — that’s already the fast lane. If you’ve booked tickets with travel agencies, expect that the lines are longer and would probably take you more than 2 hours. So I would recommend that you buy tickets directly in the Peak Tram ticket counter. But if you really want to save some moolah, then go book your tickets with Klook.
