Unit twenty six

Madame Tussaud's


One day the group went to Madame Tussaud's, one of London's most popular tourist attractions, receiving well over a million visitors a year.

Madame Tussaud was born Marie Gresholtz in Strasbourg, France, in 1761. She spent her childhood in Paris with her mother and her uncle who, when she was rather young, took Marie to help mould the heads of the Revolution victims.

In 1802 Marie fled Paris, and arrived in Britain with her macabre collection, first touring the country. Then she set up an exhibition of historical figures, living and dead, in London in 1835. The collection moved to Marylebone Road, the present location of the museum, in 1884. Madame Tussaud died in 1850 at the age of 89.

The Great Hall of the museum shows the present royal family, kings and queens of England, present royals of other countries, public figures, pop stars, writers, famous sportsmen and other figures.

Some time after the group visited the museum David Hill asked one of the participants about his impressions:

David: Well, Ivan, and how did you like the museum?

Ivan: Oh, it's great. I heard so much about it. But the mu­seum surpassed all my expectations.

David: It's really fantastic. And were you photographed with your personal hero or any celebrity?

Ivan: Oh, yes. With Arnold Schwartzenegger, Yeltsin, the Beatles and some others. And I wished my son could be with me when I enjoyed the Spirit of London.

David: Do you mean the ride through the old city in a car in the museum?

Ivan: Yes, quite so. It was superb. The historic sights of the past, sounds and smell of the city.

David: By the way, do you know how much all these innova­ tions could cost?

Ivan: No idea.

David: About 21 million pounds.

Ivan: Quite a lot. But it 's very impressive, especially for chil­dren, I mean the Spirit of London. As to the wax fig­ures they are unforgettable for all, to my mind.

David: I agree with you.
