Would you like to meet celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Katy Perry or even President Barack Obama? Well, you can in Sydney! These celebrities may not be very lively when you meet them though, and don't expect them to speak to you. No, they're not all snobs... they're just made of wax.
Located in Darling Harbour, Madame Tussauds is a world renowned wax museum with life-size statues of famous singers, actors and politicians. There are many notable Australian icons in the Sydney exhibit as well. As an American tourist, I wasn't very familiar with many of the Aussies except for Crocodile Dundee and Keith Urban, but it was interesting to read about who they were and learn all about their contributions to Australian history.
Madame Tussauds is wheelchair accessible and there are even ramps so that you can roll right up to the celebs that are on stages. As a huge Lady Gaga fan, I freaked out a bit (in a happy way) when I saw that she was there, but was saddened to realize that she was on a stage. I thought that I could not get on the stage to get a good picture with her, but then my mom spotted a ramp luckily! I have been to many other wax museums and have never been able to go on the stages, so I was extremely happy to see that there were many more ramps throughout the building and accessibility was never an issue.
While you are taking selfies with the wax figures, Madame Tussauds provides many props to authenticate the experience. You can wear a crown with the Royal Family, a wedding dress with Elvis or even a blue wig in Katy Perry's cotton candy paradise.
If you decide to check out the celebrities and get some awesome pictures with them, be sure to get your tickets online before you go. Not only can it be cheaper, but you can skip the long line that ensues sometimes. Whether you are 5 or 55, Madame Tussauds is a fun attraction and a great way to spend your time in Sydney's Darling Harbour.
