Famous waxwork museum Madame Tussauds Dubai opening in October Wax Museum

Dubai/NITN: Visitors to Dubai will now have to make time for one more world class attraction, Madame Tussauds Dubai.

The famous wax work museum, which will open to general visitors on October 14 this year, is located adjacent to Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel, in Dubai’s popular waterfront destination Bluewaters.

The waxworks cover a range of globally famous personalities from the world of politics, film and music, fashion and sports, etc.

Alongside 60 waxworks of international figures, there are representations of 16 personalities from the Middle East, according to the brand.

Guests can take photographs with the celebrity figures or even enjoy some dramatic moments.

From posing with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sharing a table with Hollywood heart throb Audrey Hepburn, hanging around with Spiderman off a building high above the cityscape, taking a selfie with Victoria Beckham to striking a pose with Emirati singer Balqees Fathi, the museum gives you plenty of opportunities to choose your favourite characters.

There is a section devoted to Bollywood artists, including Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Madhuri Dixit and Katrina Kaif, among others.

The sports personalities section would be a joy to many, with a chance to step into the ring with legendary boxer Mohammed Ali to take a penalty kick alongside Messi and Ronaldo, posing with British racing car driver Lewis Hamilton, Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli or UAE sporting personality Amna Al Haddad, to name a few.

Entry tickets have to be booked online.

It is best to acquaint yourself with the COVID-19 protocols being followed at the museum before visiting.
