Opinions on Madame Tussauds Prague: a nice museum, but not the best!
The first thing I noticed was that the museum is quite small. This is confirmed inside. There are wax statues, but not as many as I would have liked. After that disappointment, I set about discovering the statues.
If I’m not a crazy photographer in museums, I change completely in a place like Madame Tussauds. I liked being able to take selfies with the statues, although I must admit I had trouble recognizing some of the figures, especially those representing Czech personalities I didn’t know. Perhaps this is an area for improvement: provide a short biography next to each statue to help foreign visitors better understand who these characters are.
The museum is well organized, but I found it lacking in variety compared to other Madame Tussauds museums, such as the one I visited in Las Vegas. Fortunately, the presence of statues like Stalin is really surprising. One might even say frightening when you think of what he did…
As for the entrance fee, I understand that maintaining a museum of this nature represents a cost, but I find it too high, especially considering the size of the museum and the number of statues.
I should also mention that when it’s crowded, it’s difficult to take photos.
In conclusion, did I enjoy my visit to Madame Tussauds Prague? Overall, yes. It was an interesting experience and I had a great time. But would I recommend this museum to everyone? Probably not. I think it’s especially worth a visit if you’re a big fan of Madame Tussauds museums or if you want to discover some Czech figures. Otherwise, there are plenty of other cultural sites in Prague that might interest you more.
