If you have never been at Madame Tussauds before and you are among those who occasionally like to impress your friends and family with a photo, then you will certainly get infected by the selfie fever which dominates the atmosphere there. Due to the wide range of different stars and personalities, which are presented there as wax figures, almost everybody will find some of his idols.
The answer is relatively easy for all who already have visited a Madame Tussauds branch. The parent house in London definitely offers an increase! This affects the amount of presented wax figures as well as the number of visitors.
