where you can grab a drink.The Basics
Madame Tussaud, a Parisian wax sculptor who lived in the 18th and 19th centuries, created death masks of famous victims of the French Revolution, including Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, and Robespierre. In the early 19th century, she toured Great Britain with her wax likenesses of famous—and infamous—figures, marking the start of the Madame Tussauds brand, which boasts locations across Europe, Asia, Australia, and in several American cities.
Each of the wax figures takes several hundred hours to make, with human-hair wigs, fiberglass eyeballs, painted details, and meticulous makeup. The Las Vegas attraction is home to a range of likenesses including athletes, musicians, comic book heroes, and, of course, Elvis. Madame Tussauds is one of the attractions accessible with visitor passes such as the Las Vegas Explorer Pass and Go Las Vegas Card.Things to Know Before You Go
