Marie Tussaud Turns 258!
Celebrating Marie Tussauds' 258th Birthday!
Marie Tussaud was born in December 1761 in Strasbourg, France, making this month her 258th birthday!
To mark the occasion, the original Madame Tussauds on London's Baker Street will be holding a week of celebrations. This will include a Marie-style takeover on Twitter and Instagram, as well as lots of birthday props, party hats and balloons in the attraction to get guests in a celebratory mood.Up until her final years, it was not unusual for Marie herself to be spotted in the entrance of the attraction counting the day’s takings, so we’ll be moving her self-portrait figure to admissions in celebration of her birthday!
