Madame Tussaud's

Madam Tussaud started her wax-modeling career quite morbidly by taking death masks of many of the best-known victims of the French Revolution.  Her first exhibition was in 1835 on Baker Street, not far from the museum's present site.  Using traditional wax-modeling techniques, the collection features politicians, film and television actors, rock stars and sporting heroes.  The Chamber of Horrors includes re-creations of the most gruesome crimes and criminals in history including, Dr. Crippen, Vlad the Impaler and Jack the Ripper's Victorian murder spree.  Situated in the same complex is Tussaud's London Planetarium.  The collection is one of the more popular attractions in London and generally the queues are quite long.
