[Singapore] Madame Tussauds

8:40 PM

Madame Tussauds Singapore is a wax museum which located at the Imbiah Lookout of Sentosa Island in Singapore. This seventh Asian branch of the Madame Tussauds chain was officially opened in 25th of October 2014 and has been one of the most favorite tourist attraction in Sentosa Island ever since. The wax museum features many wax figures of notable political icons, famous superstars, sports icons and many others.

To be honest, I don’t really want to go there at the first time. It was my mom who insist to check the wax museum and as always, “what mommy want, mommy gets”. The ticket price for an adult is SGD 28. However on my way to the museum, there are a few of the museum’s employee who give out a SGD 10 off voucher for the museum’s ticket. Yay! Lucky us!

Disclaimer: the numbering on the list doesn't mean it is the best or whatsoever.
It is just the number of which I saw first to the very last one.

1. The Spirit of Singapore



The Spirit of Singapore is a boat ride that located right after the ticketing desk. The ride is included with the Madame Tussauds ticket. It told us a brief story about Singapore while we are sailing through it with a boat for about 8 people. The boat make a small round of Singapore’s icons mock-up such as Stamford Raffles, Merlion, Singapore Airlines, Marina Bay Sands and many more. It also show us Singapore culture such as the China Town, Little India and others. This ride is what makes Madame Tussauds Singapore different than the other branch.




2. History & Leaders Area





The first area of the museum is the History & Leaders Area. This particular area was quite long and has a lot figures than I expected. We met lots of famous leaders and historical people from around the world such as Yusof bin Ishak, Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Queen Elizabeth II, Barack Obama and many more. And of course our very own country leaders Mr. Soekarno and Mr. Joko Widodo.



In this area, the museum also provide you a table with tablet on it, which has some kind of games about these people. Sadly I didn’t get the chance to try it since there are many people waiting in line to play it.




3. Sports Area


After that, we are welcomed by the world famous sports icon. Here we can see Muhammad Ali, Tiger Woods, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Tiger Woods and even Rudy Hartono. For those who doesn’t familiar with Rudy Hartono, he is Indonesian badminton player who is considered as one of the best badminton player in the world. *proud* And in case you are wondering, yes, Yao Ming is really high. I was just about his stomach when I took his picture.

4. Film & TV Area





The next area is the Film & TV Area. In this area, you can see the iconic TV or movie star such as Oprah, Bruce Lee and Marilyn Monroe. There are also local TV star, which I didn’t familiar of (sorry). In some area, they also recreate iconic scenes from a movie or like Breakfast at Tiffany, E.T and The Terminator.


Audrey Hepburn is so gorgeous!

Oh by the way, right before you enter the Film & TV Area, there is a small space with a short history of the Madame Tussauds museum. Even you can find the madame Marie Tussauds herself there. Oh! You can also waxified yourself there! They have a mini booth where you can make a wax figure of your hand. I didn’t ask around for the price but it seems quite cheap since I saw a lot of people are doing it.

5. IIFA Awards Experience Area



The IIFA Awards Experience Area is also what makes the Singapore branch is different than the others. They have a special area that recreate the IIFA Awards Experience. The IIFA Awards is a prestigious award in Indian films society. Here you can experience how does it feel to be an actor/actress with paparazzi taking your shots, be in the front cover with Shah Rukh Khan, accept your awards and do the speech and also try to dance like those Bollywood stars.

6. Music Area


Moving on to the most crowded area, the Music Area. Here you can mingle with the most famous singer in the world. Starting from the King of Rock and Roll-Elvis Presley, the King of Pop-Michael Jackson, Madonna, Katy Perry and many more.


And of course, what is the meaning of a music area in a wax museum with the queen herself, Beyoncé.

7. A-List Party Area



Last but definitely not least, my main intention to be there, the A-List Party Area. The room was so beautiful with a grand piano in the middle. Here you can mingle with Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Leonardo Dicaprio and many more. And of course, my one and only, Johnny Depp.


Mind the blurry pictures of Johnny Depp since I was so excited to see him, I can’t hold myself. Even I was going to kiss him at one point. LOL! Sorry not sorry.

***

Since I’ve been to the Madame Tussauds London and Madame Tussauds Hong Kong, I personally didn’t really impressed with this one (my mom had a lot of fun though). Other than the figures inside wasn’t as much as the one in London nor Hong Kong, the museum was pretty small for an iconic museum. And also each figures is standing too close to each other, so we can’t really take a good pictures without anyone else foreshadowing you on the background.

However my visit there still has fun factor to it. Imagine you can being that close to your favorite celebrities. Especially when you can hug all those figures and probably imagining what does it feels like if they were alive. By the way, I also met Spiderman on my way out and he doesn’t seem so ready to crush those bad guys.


Yeah, not without that flowery backdrop.
