Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

After living in Beijing for over a year now, I’ve seen all of the famous Beijing historical attractions, and I needed something new. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven, and all Beijing’s traditional sights, but I needed a bit of adventure in my life that wasn’t temple or park based.

So after reading about Beijing’s Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in The Economist, I knew exactly what I wanted to do on my day off. I was going to spend an afternoon with the stars, or at least their wax models.Girl with Jackie

At Madame Tussauds you can take a selfie with politicians, athletes, and movie stars from across the world. What you will not find are any politicians from China. You can get a photo of you picking Vladamir Putin’s nose, but the idea of you with your arm around Chairman Mao was a bit too much for the Chinese government. Maybe someday…

Even though the museum was lacking in Chinese officials, I still had a fantastic time. Here are a few of my favorites from Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.
