Madame Tussauds To Open in Dubai At This Location

Merlin Entertainments Ltd (Merlin) on Tuesday announced the opening of the world-famous wax attraction, Madame Tussauds, in Dubai at Bluewaters Island later this year,

Visitors can get up close and take pictures with 60 global stars, including 16 brand new wax figures from the Middle East region.

Madame Tussauds Dubai will be located next to Ain Dubai, the world’s largest observation wheel.

Each figure at Madame Tussauds is created using the expertise of sculptors who use the same techniques as the famous Marie Tussaud.

To create a single life-like figure, it takes an artist 12 weeks in total, and during that time, they document 500 precise body measurements, insert real hair strand by strand, apply countless layers of paints to build up the skin tones, and more.

The time and craftsmanship are also reflected in the figure's value, which can cost up to a whopping AED 700,000 (GBP 150,000) depending on the detail required.

Madame Tussauds first opened its doors in 1835 in London and has nearly 200 years of heritage.
