In the early 19-th century, a 42 year old Marie Gresholtz touched base in London ,with her four-year-old child and three wax statues. The son was the product of a short-lived marriage to one Tussaud; the three Sleeping Beauties were part of her inheritance, left by her guardian Curtius, sculptor extraordinaire.
Madame Tussaud had lived in the company of wax since she was six.
Thousands and thousands of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds museums since they first opened over 250 years ago and it remains just as popular as it ever was. There are many reasons for this enduring success, but at the heart of it all is good, old-fashioned curiosity.
In 1884, several decades after her death, Madame Tussaud’s wax museum moved to its current location on London’s Marylebone Road, where millions have stood in queue for hours to get a glimpse at her work and that of her successors.
