Want to pose with your favourite celebrity? Dubai is all set to welcome its very own Madame Tussaud’s. The famous wax attraction that has been an iconic landmark in London for years is ready to take-over the Arab tourist scene. Located in Dubai’s scenic Bluewater Island, this museum will feature over 60 global stars including 16 wax figures from the Arab industry and is scheduled to open later this year.
Madame Tussaud’s has branches all over the world, it uses the exact same technique used by the renowned artist Marie Tussaud centuries ago. Each wax statue takes about 12 weeks of work and costs a fortune. Post-pandemic Dubai has been relentlessly adding exciting and wow-factor attractions to its kitty. This museum will have seven themed rooms which would take you on a surreal ride, a Bollywood movie with Shahrukh Khan or even getting photographed with beauty sensation Kylie Jenner.
Dubai never fails to do things one notch higher and setting the bar. This museum is the first with interactive rooms, photo-booths with hypothetical creation of iconic scenes, like tea with the queen, ride a rickshaw with a celebrity, dance floor and even fashion runway recreations. It’s no more about just the wax figures, Dubai promises a memorable experience that would leave the residents and tourists amazed!
