Since Madame Tussauds is located next to aquarium Siam Ocean World, then I decided to look into the museum too.
In principle, I cannot say that the museum is definitely worth visiting ... But I remember when, as a child, I saw the wax museum for the first time, so it was delight and surprise! So, if you have never seen, then you need to go, look at our Putin, at other famous people, they are there, as if they were alive, only they are silent, meaningfully staring into the distance.

Madame Tussauds Bangkok
Tom Cruise himself meets you at the entrance near the ticket office. Already here you can take pictures, kiss, touch and calm down. But you can go further ... in the sense of the museum, and not what you think. Especially if you absolutely need to have a photo with Barack Obama, Gandhi or Madonna 🙂
Directly all the famous characters in the museum, of course not, but I think most of the existing ones will be enough. Accordingly, I also did not take pictures of everyone in a row, especially I don’t know half.
There are not very many people in the museum, but I got there at the time of the arrival of a large Russian group. Which figure do you think everyone was most interested in? Right! Our beloved eternal president, Mr. Putin. I had to wait 20 minutes for His Majesty to be free and ready for a mini-photo shoot. Suddenly, then upon my return I will decide to write about politics, that will be a good illustration.
In general, while I was walking around the museum, an interesting thought came to me - here in the museum there is a great opportunity for various personalities to say directly to their faces what you think of them, good or bad. As an option, blind people at home and speak out every day so that you don't go to Bangkok every time 🙂
The halls are divided thematically. First there is a hall with spiritual leaders such as Gandhi, for example. Next come politicians, then creative people, athletes, Hollywood stars.
The very last room tells how the figures are made. And at the very end, you can dip your hand in wax and take a souvenir with you, not for free, really.
Information to visit
Madame Tussauds is located in the Siam Discovery shopping center on the 6th floor. This is one of the three buildings in the Siam complex, which are adjacent. In principle, once there, you can ask any guard where it is. This shopping center is extreme: Central World, Siam Paragon, Siam Discovery. The nearest metro BTS Siam (right next to it).
The ticket price on the spot is 990 baht per adult, 790 baht for a child 3-11 years old (up to 3 years old free). But, there is an opportunity to go cheaper, with a discount: 650 baht per adult and 600 baht per child. That's exactly what I did. Now I'll tell you how.
Go to the Klook website and buy tickets online there. Naturally, you need to buy them a little in advance. A voucher will be sent to your email, then you will need to show it from the phone screen.
Discounted tickets for 650 baht>

P.S. To the touch, the figures do not at all resemble wax, rather plastic of some kind - smooth and hard.
