Madame Tussauds Singapore - Bumble Bee Mum

I used to think Madame Tussauds was just a museum full of life-like wax figurines standing around and not something that would interest the kids.  Well, I was half-right.  It was essentially a museum full of life-life wax figurines.  But it was a lot more interesting than I expected!

Costumes and props were provided for visitors to use to take photos and there were some games for the kids to play.

On top of that, Images of Live Singapore and the Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride were also included in our visit! Let me show you some of the fun we had at Madame Tussauds Singapore.

History & Leaders

The moment we entered Madame Tussauds Singapore, the first person we encountered was Yusof Bin Ishak.   Yusof Bin Ishak was Singapore’s first President.  If you have never heard of him but yet you found him vaguely familiar, perhaps you had seen him on Singapore’s bank notes.

We entered a room full of Presidents and Royalties like Barrack Obama and the England Royal Family.

And of course, not forgetting our local politicians.

Mr Lee Kuan Yew was accompanied by his wife, Kwa Geok Choo.

With video clips of key historical moments in Mr Lee Kuan Yew’s political career being screened at the side.

There was also a tablet game – which the boys were too young to understand but they played it anyway and were declared traitors.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 02

The kids were not very interested in the History & Leaders section frankly.  But the next section kept them occupied for a long time.

Sports

The first sports celebrity we met was David Beckham, who was busy doing sit-ups.  MF decided to join in.

We also took turns to participate in a boxing match with Muhammad Ali.

We challenged Yao Ming to a game of basketball.

We played golf alongside Tiger Woods.

We played cricket with Sachin Tendulkar.

And the boys’ absolute favourite: A penalty shoot-out with Cristiano Ronaldo watching.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 08

And since this was Madame Tussauds Singapore, how could we forget our local sports celebrities Feng Tianwei and Fandi Ahmad.

Take A Step Back in Time

After having plenty of fun in the sports section, the mood quickly changed as we entered the life of Madame Tussauds – which was kind of creepy.

And in this section, you could make a wax hand for a fee.

On Air

Moving on, we reached the section with TV celebrities.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 17

The section was a mock-up of a TV studio.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 21

We had the opportunity to appear on Oprah Winfrey show.  Though personally, I wished they had Ellen DeGeneres instead.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 19

And we met our local TV celebrities, ‘Caldecott Queen’ Zoe Tay (with MF posing as a director next to her) and the late Huang Wenyong.

And they even had Phua Chu Kang’s signature yellow boots for us to put on!

Music

Moving on to the music section, we met the likes of Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Madonna, Beyonce etc.  There was a drum set that the boys played with for a while, without even knowing who Michael Jackson was.

And of course, our local singers JJ Lin and Stephanie Sun were also there.

And there was Jay Chou.  We just had to take photos with Jay Chou.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 24

Actually the boys’ hats remind me of the 稻香 MTV (see the hats Jay Chou and friends were wearing in the MTV below?).

Keep the video playing while you finish reading the post and you’ll have background music by Jay Chou.  Hah!

Film

Next, we go back in time and meet some classic film celebrities.

Hasta La Vista, Baby!

And enter the classic scene from E.T.!

A-List Party

This is where you find the likes of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Johnny Depp etc.

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 29

That Tom Cruise was insanely good looking.  Wish I could say the same about Brad Pitt (go there and see for yourself – you’ll know what I mean).

Images of Singapore Live

Images of Singapore

Madame Tussauds Singapore tickets also include entry to Images of Singapore, which I found extremely entertaining and informative.  The boys were too young to appreciate it though.  I think children need to be at least primary school age to understand what’s going on.

Photography and videography were not allowed, so I can’t show you much.  You need to follow a 30-minutes tour of the exhibits with live commentary, film and special effects along the way.  You cannot leave the tour halfway through and need to complete it once you are inside – so make sure the kids go to the toilet before you enter!

Visit Images of Singapore LIVE website for further information.

Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride

Madame Tussauds Singapore Blog Review 32

At the end of the Images of Singapore tour, we were brought to the Spirit of Singapore Boat Ride, which was also included with Madame Tussauds Singapore tickets. The boat makes a small round with mock-ups of Singapore icons like Gardens by the Bay and F1 pit surrounding the course.

    Unfortunately there is no chamber of horrors. That’s the real draw of the museum.
