Shanghai Madame Tussauds is the sixth division worldwide, but it is quite significant and the first one in mainland China, exhibiting the foreign celebrities apart from Chinese pop stars and famous figures such as Princess Diana, Bill Gates, David Beckham, Tom Cruise, Albert Einstein, Ge You, Yao Ming(basketball star), Bruce Lee(Kungfu movie star), Andy Lau, Jay Chou, Kelly Chen, Liu Xiang(Olympic champion), Sun Yang(Olympic champion), Sun Li, Wu Qilong, Yang Liwei (China’s first cosmonaut)and Yang Zhengning (Nobel Prize Winner).

The Chamber of Horrors will make people feel sacred. It is the ghost zone indeed. The dim lights, freezing air and floating figures by real persons or wax figures will thrill and chill you. This is a wild world to help you experience the original fear of humankind.
About Madame Tussauds: Marie Tussaud (1761–1850) was a famous French wax figure maker. She learnt the skill from Dr. Philippe Curtius, her mentor. At the age of 17, she became art tutor to King Louis XVI’s sister at the Palace of Versailles. During the French Revolution, she was forced to make lots of death masks of the executed aristocrats to prove her allegiance to the feudalistic nobles. When she was 74, she opened her studio in London with an exhibition of revolutionary relics and effigies of public heroes and rogues. In 1835, it has become a quite popular tourist attraction in London.
