You could say Madame Tussauds Museum is a museum for selfie lovers. Who is not happy to meet an idol, even if it's only a wax 'action figure'.

One of the main attractions of the Tussaud museum is "The Chamber of Horrors". This part of the exhibition features some of the victims of the French Revolution as well as statues of the murderers and other criminals. The name of this room was given by someone in Punch magazine in 1845.

Other famous figures were added to the exhibition space, including Horatio Nelson and Sir Walter Scott. Some of the wax figures made by Tussaud himself still exist today. In 1842, he created a wax figure of himself which is now on display at the main entrance to his museum.

The Madame Tussaud Museum moved to its present address on Marylebone Road in 1884. In 1925 a fire destroyed many of the statues, but their prints were saved so that the historic wax figures could be remade.

Madame Tussaud's wax museum has now grown into a tourist destination in London, adjoining (until recently) the London Planetarium on its west side. This museum already has branches in Amsterdam, Las Vegas, New York City, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Hollywood-Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. Today, Madame Tussauds' wax figures consist of historical figures, royal families, film stars, famous athletes and well-known criminals. The Madame Tussauds Museum is currently owned by a tour company called Merlin Entertainments after acquiring the Tussauds Group in May 2007.

Not just anyone whose figure can be immortalized in this museum. Only famous figures who are considered influential are immortalized in Madame Tussauds.

Well, from Indonesia itself, there are several figures who have now been immortalized in the Madame Tussauds Museum.
