How much time do you need to spend at the wax museum?

It takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete a visit at Madame Tussauds; however, you may take as little or as long as you need to experience the entire attraction. We went on a Wednesday afternoon and it wasn’t busy at all so we didn’t have to wait our turn with the wax figures and we could take our time making our way through the museum.

Is Madame Tussauds worth visiting?

Madame Tussaud’s is definitely worth visiting. My husband, our 7 year old daughter and I had a lot of fun checking out the wax figures and taking selfies with the famous statues. We bought our tickets the night before and bundled it with the SEALIFE Aquarium, which is in the same building at ICON park.

If you want to take a break from the theme parks and cool off with some indoor activities I definitely recommend a visit to Madame Tussaud’s Orlando. There is free parking in the near by car lot and lots of activities at the ICON park complex.

Because of Covi-19 the “Wax Hands” Experience where you can make a mold of your hand in dipped wax, is closed.
