Madame Tussauds will open the first branch in Prague at the end of the year. The operator of the famous museum signed a license with the Czech company Wax Museum – World of Entertainment. In a press release, the Merlin Entertainments group, under which Madame Tussauds falls, reported today.

The basis of the London Museum was the wax figures of the French artist Marie Tussaud. The museum is a tourist attraction not only for London but also for branches and many other cities around the world. Tussaud created the first figure in 1777, and in London Tussaud’s permanent exhibition opened in 1884.

Tussaud learned everything from the doctor Philipp Curtius, who was involved in making wax models for medical purposes.

The production of one masterpiece today will employ 20 experienced sculptors for up to four months. Over 500 real body dimensions are used during sculpture modelling, real hair is mounted one by one, and several layers of paint and exclusive tinting are needed to achieve the most natural skin tone.

Dear customers,

I am deeply sorry to inform you that unfortunately our company will no longer be able to provide any trips and as of today, we are closing all the bookings.

This decision was hard to make and it came as a result of a sudden death of our CEO, who also was my beloved father, and we are not able to provide an adequate experience for you as we need some time to deal with both practical matters and our grief.

I would like to kindly ask you to cancel your reservations yourselves, so you are able to get the full refund as soon as possible.

If you had a chance to enjoy any of our trips with Láďa (Vladimir), I whole-heartedly believe you have enjoyed yourselves and created some unforgettable memories together and I hope as well that Láďa will be remembered in your hearts in the same way that he is in mine. I would be pleased to hear about your experiences with my dad and if you'd like to send me any photos, stories or memories, I greatly encourage you to do so.

Thank you for your understanding and your cooperation in these difficult times.

Should there be any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact me via my personal e-mail: or phone: +420 603 382 933
