Luxury Accommodations for Madame Tussauds
Hollywood’s famous around the world for its star-power amperage, and visitors flock here for tours of celebrity homes, historical landmarks, and other opportunities to be just a few degrees removed from entertainment legends.
Well, you’re guaranteed a celebrity sighting (of sorts) at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, less than a half-hour from Hotel Amarano here in Burbank. Our local branch of this iconic wax museum is well worth a visit during your stay at our boutique hotel!
Madame Tussauds Hollywood
Madame Tussauds Hollywood is but one (auspiciously situated) location of the Madame Tussauds family of wax museums, which got their start centuries ago. Madame (Marie) Tussaud was born Anna Maria Grosholtz, who learned waxwork techniques as a child in France and opened her first wax museum in London in the 1830s.
A whole slew of famous faces populate Madame Tussauds Hollywood, exemplifying the brand’s incredibly lifelike standard that always manages to surprise and impress. Everyone from Fred Astaire, Judy Garland, and Katharine Hepburn to Barack Obama, Penelope Cruz, and Meryl Streep show up here—so real-looking you feel like you catch them blinking.
The “residents” of Madame Tussauds Hollywood are mostly of the human variety, but there are a few iconic movie creatures on hand as well, including E.T., King Kong, and Shrek.
Fan of Westerns? Well, you can come face to face with John Wayne in his True Grit Rooster Cogburn persona, Clint Eastwood as the Man with No Name (from the great Sergio Leone Spaghetti Westerns), and the immortal tagteam of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid—i.e., Paul Newman and Robert Redford—right here at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
Or maybe you’ll red-carpet it up with Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, Snoop Dogg, and others at the “A-List Party” installation. Nostalgic about the ‘90s? (We’re sorry.) Well, you can hang with Britney, Tupac, Selana, and more in the meticulously decked-out “The ‘90s Are Here” display. Then there’s Iron Man, Thor, Wolverine, and Captain America holding down the fort in the “Marvel Superheroes 4-D” experience.
“Pop Icons,” “Spirit of Hollywood,” “Modern Classics”—there’s much, much more to explore within the walls of Madame Tussauds Hollywood, as unforgettable a walk-through as any museum can boast.
