Marie Grosholz, burned at 7 December 1761, in Strasburg, has founded the wax museum Madame Tussauds.
Her mothers employer, Mr. Philippe Curtius has Marie learned the art of wax modelling. But this wasn’t his job, no, he was a doctor. And his hobby was collection some wax figures.
The first person, who Marie had copy in wax by herself was the famous author and philosopher Francois-Marie Arouet Voltaire.
In 1794 Marie had inherits Curtius’s collection of wax figures.My impression
One year later she married François Tussaud, an engineer. But she had leaves him eight years later to bring the collection on a tour of the British Isles.
1835 Madame Tussaud curb into a permanent home in the Bazaar, Baker Street in London.
In 1850 Marie dies.
It gives also a wax Museum in Denmark, Copenhagen, but this called “Scandinavian Panoptikon” this was founded in 1885 from Bernhard Olsen, the first director of Tivoli. Tivoli is a leisure park.
Last summer, I was visited Madame Tussauds with a friend. It was very amazing, because it had so many visitors, so sometimes we weren’t sure if it was a real person or a wax figure.
It was funny but also interesting to see famous peoples from earlier, like Albert Einstein or Napoleon Bonaparte.
I hope you find time to visit Madame Tussaud. I can advised it.
Thanks for your attention....
