The history of Madame Tussaud is a fascinating story, and all began in Paris in 1770, where she learned to create images in wax. She learned her skills from Dr Philippe Curtius and created death masks of nobility sent to their deaths during the French Revolution. In 1835, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum first opened its doors in London, after she arrived in Britain with a traveling exhibition of the most famous people of the day. The original exhibition included artifacts from the French Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars. The original museum was moved to its permanent location in London in 1884.
