Some people hate wax museums - a few of my friends insist that they are creepy, dorky, or a bit of both. To these people I say, "Lighten up!" Wax museums are tons of fun - you just have to suspend reality for a moment and be willing to think up brilliant and hilarious scenarios for your dorky / creepy photographs! There's not a lot of instructions or helpful tips to be shared about visiting Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum in Las Vegas, so this post will mostly be a 'photo-essay'.
Here are the facts: we visited Madame Tussaud's during our trip in 2009. It cost us $20.76 each, because I had bought advance tickets online while still at home in Canada. To buy at the door will cost you $25.95 each - not much of a difference, unless you want to buy a drink later on in the evening, in which case, that five bucks you saved will be warmly welcomed!
If you don't already know, Madame Tussaud's is located just outside the Venetian casino on the Strip - it is very easy to find. You can start your tour through a maze of waxen celebrities at 10:00 a.m., or go as late as 9:00 p.m. (the attraction closes at 9:30 p.m.).
