tussauds

Marie Tussaud (1761-1850) is famous today for the museum of wax figures that bears her name in London, England. She founded it in 1835 on Baker Street, and some of the figures she created can still be admired today.

Her first wax portrait was that of the philosopher Voltaire; after that, she created many more of contemporary figures, attracting great fame and admiration. She barely escaped the French Revolution with her life, and created death masks of many of its most famous victims, such as Robespierre or Marie Antoinette. The museum she founded is now one of London’s top tourist attractions.
