Madame Tussauds goes wrong… again

As some of you with long memories might recall Mr O and I took a trip to Madame Tussauds with his family about a year and a half ago for my brother-in-law’s birthday… and behaved badly. While Madame Tussauds is one of London’s most famous attractions it’s also one of its cheesiest and I still maintain that very few of the waxworks actually look like who they are supposed to.

Anyway, Mr O now works for the same company that owns Madame Tussauds which means that we get to go there for free and I like anything that is free (something I learned from both of my parents). At the moment the attraction has a special exhibition on the go featuring characters from Star Wars. As you’ll know from my recent Film Fridays, I love a bit of Star Wars as does Mr O, so we decided to go and investigate. In order to get to the Star Wars bit we had to go through the rest of the exhibits and we might once again have been a little bit bad…

If you fancy spending some time with the heroes and villains of Star Wars you can check out the exhibition at Madame Tussauds. Tickets are £33 on the day or you can buy them at discounted rates online in advance.

  1. very cool. they actually let everyone touch the exhibits? or was it because you guys are special?

      The exhibits are full interactive so as long as you’re not being destructive you can touch them as much as you want 🙂

      We had way too much fun.

      1. No such thing as too much fun. 🙂

  2. Jay

    Wow, y’all are getting real comfortable with these new friends of yours!

    That statue of Cyrus needs to be burned.

    1. abbiosbiston

      Melted?

  4. Oh I’m jealous! So many opportunities for misbehavior…

    1. abbiosbiston

      If there weren’t so many other people there it would have been 1000 times worse!

  5. I went to a Tussaud’s in Hollywood, and we weren’t allowed to touch. I got some nice pics, but a lot of them were behind glass.

    1. abbiosbiston

      That’s do disappointing! At the London one you can totally manhandle them!

  6. I can’t believe that was supposed to be Miley Cyrus. And Jennifer Lopez looks like she has 6 months to live.

    1. abbiosbiston

      And that’s after I Instagrammed her!

  7. Hysterical. I’m still laughing. Thanks, Abbi and Mr. O!

      🙂

  8. This was a really great post, so fun.

    1. abbiosbiston

      Thanks! We had an absolute blast!

  9. Bwahahahaha, looks like you guys had such a blast!

    1. abbiosbiston

      We did. We can;t be trusted to behave anywhere!

  10. Hahaha! I kept thinking, “I wonder what the tourists must have thought” as every time I’ve been there, everyone has been very well behaved. I think your way is much more fun 😀 x

      Most people were taking it very seriously and didn’t seem to notice our bad behaviour or were just too polite to say anything. I find it hard to take anything seriously.

      1. I love looking at your pics! You and your husband always seem to have the most fun together. You’re such a cute couple 🙂
