Jul 29, 2013 - Lifelike Stars of Madame Tussauds Hollywood

Ever dreamed of being up close and personal with the stars? No, not the stars way up there in the sky, the kind of stars that we are talking about is the celebrities of Hollywood. Yes, those kind of stars – that’s what we are talking about. However, truth to be told, in reality, it is a little, if not very difficult to get up close and personal with the stars of Hollywood. Even to take a picture with them would be quite impossible. But if you have always dreamed of wanting to take pictures with your favorite stars, it can be a dream come true – what you need to do is to travel to the Madame Tussauds Hollywood in a rented Los Angeles bus. Yes, it can be that easy.

For the uninitiated, Madame Tussauds is a wax museum that was founded by Marie Tussaud, a famous wax sculptor and the wax museum is a popular tourist spot in many major cities in the world. In the wax museum, you will be able to see waxworks of historical and royal personalities, famous film stars and sports stars as well as infamous murderers too. Be sure to give yourself at least few hours when you come to visit the Madame Tussauds at 6933 Hollywood Blvd, Los Angeles in the rented LA bus. Bring along your camera and your friends and pose with the famous figures of the world.

Arriving at the entrance of Madame Tussauds (which is also located next to the World Famous Chinese Theatre) after you and your friends come down from the Los Angeles rented bus, the wax museum would seem like just another shop along the street, but wait till you get in there. Previously, in the Madame Tussauds, they used to keep the wax displays “protected” with museum style ropes and poles around the exhibit – but not anymore! Visitors can now get really up close with the Hollywood’s superstars and pose for photos with no bodyguards trying to keep you away.

The wax figures of the famous Hollywood’s A-listers are so real, that it would almost seem too surreal for many of the Los Angeles rented bus visitors to even get up close and touch them. Imagine, you get to ride a bike with E.T., dance with Patrick Swayze, sing with Carrie Underwood, and use the props provided by the museum for “action” photos to be taken with your favorite stars. And if you feel like a cup of coffee and some light snacks after you and your friends have had your share of fun at Madame Tussauds, there’s always Starbucks or The Coffee Bean nearby.
