Statue of famous celebrities, historical leaders, royal figures and sportsmen can be found inside the museum. All the statues were carved smoothly to make it look like the actual person.

I had the opportunity to visit the wax museum in 2 different locations, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Both seem to be nearly the same size and some of the sculptures being exhibits are also the same between the two places. David Beckham and Adolf Hitler were at both places while Wayne Rooney was only available in Shanghai.

From the pictures you can see that the sculpture really looks like the really person.

    Love this! I went to the Madame Tussauds in Amsterdam and because that was when the third Pirates of the Caribbean movie came out, they actually had live actors! It was really scary because it was like a haunted house with pirates.
