Images of Singapore LIVE & Madame Tussauds

The Madame Tussauds Singapore is located at the Imbiah Outlook on Sentosa Island.

Singapore Girl welcomes you at the ticket counters.

Before entering Madame Tussauds, we have to take a tour in the Images of Singapore LIVE. Photo-taking is not allowed inside the attraction, where an actor (or actress) is stationed at each exhibition zone to narrate the history. The sequence of the exhibition is chronological (as expected), bringing the visitors through the development from our early days.

Old soft drink glass bottles that are no longer sold in Singapore.

At the end of the corridor, there's a trishaw on display. It was a common public transportation in the past. Today, tourist take a ride on them for a cultural experience.

The Images of Singapore LIVE took us about one hour to complete. After a really short indoor boat ride, we can finally see the life-size wax figurines of famous people in Madame Tussauds.

There are many other wax figures of leaders, athletes, actors and singers. I didn't have the opportunity to take photos of many because there is constantly people taking selfies with the figures. I'm not really a huge fan of wax museums, but KB had always wanted to visit them. We didn't manage to go to the one in Hong Kong two years ago, because it was way too crowded. So, we went to Madame Tussauds Sydney mid of last year. Way back in 1998, I've visited the original Madame Tussauds London during a school overseas trip. Most (if not all) of the non-local celebrities can also be found in the other Madame Tussauds around the world, but the poses of these repeated figures are different in different countries. By the way, the wax figure of Mr Lee Kuan Yew had already been on display in London when I was there!
