Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

Madame Tussaud's Wax Exhibition in London is famous throughout the world for its collection of wax portraits of the famous and the infamous.
Marie Tussaud began her career during the French Revolution. She had learnt the art of wax modelling from her uncle and the revolutionaries summoned her and told her to make likenesses of the prisoners they had released. Later she also made wax likenesses of the heads of hundreds of people who perished on the guillotine.
In 1802 she moved from Paris to England and finally settled down in London where she opened a wax museum in 1834. She died in 1850 at the age of 90.
