    Wax to the Max - Disneytim at Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas

    Last night, I attended a reception at Madame Tussauds at the Venetian in Las Vegas. Madame Tussauds has over 100 lifelike wax figures, ranging from historical figures to modern celebrities. Unlike other museums, visitors are encouraged to touch and pose with the figures on display. It's great fun and a nice break from casino hopping on your Vegas vacation.

    At the entrance to the museum, Craig . . . Daniel Craig.


    The reception was held in the Spirit of America room, which contains many iconic and historical figures.

    Here, I attempt to share a great moment with Mr. Lincoln:




    Abe refused to stand up or talk. Moving on . . .

    Ben Franklin and George Washington, feeling like 101 dollars:


    John F. . . .


    . . . and Jackie Kennedy:


    Martin Luther King, Jr.:


    Muhammad Ali:


    Lucille Ball:


    John Wayne:


    First man on the moon, Neil Armstrong:


    Not American, but still earning her own section of the room, Princess Di:

    I've always wanted to go there but we never seem to find the time. So I appreciate you taking the time to do a report. But I have to ask what is Harrison doing with his hands in his pants?

    I think he's just happy to see you.

    Another room is devoted to musical entertainers . . .

    Bono:


    Prince:


    Jon Bon Jovi:


    Jeanne's taste in music tends more towards talking animals. Here she is with the Chipmunks:


    Madonna:


    Captain EO:


    OK, not really. Captain EO had a bigger nose. Actually, he had a nose.

    Britney Spears:


    Ummmm, Britney is the one on the right.

    Walking downstairs, Spider-Man reminds you to watch your step:


    Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, gin martini in hand, welcomes you to the Las Vegas Room, accompanied by two smoking-hot showgirls:


    Siegfried and Roy:


    Ben Affleck is a regular visitor to Vegas poker rooms and has a permanent seat at Madame Tussauds:


    Aviator, billionaire and Las Vegas developer Howard Hughes:


    What's Vegas without the Rat Pack? Although I'm not sure whether I'm Joey Bishop or Peter Lawford:


    Magician Lance Burton:


    Just hangin' out while Jeanne arm wrestles the King:


    Madame Tussauds is open Sun-Thurs from 10:00-9:00 and Fri-Sat from 10:00-10:00. Tickets are regularly $25.00 for adults with discount rates for kids and seniors. Madame Tussauds is celebrating its tenth anniversary in Las Vegas this year by giving Nevada residents a special $10 rate through September 7th. Yes, that was a gratuitous plug. I'm friends with the Sales Manager and she's a really neat lady and Madame Tussauds is a cool place to visit. So there.

    What fun!! I really want to go to the one in NYC. Must do that this summer!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    That was an awesome report Tim! Some of the figures look alive. Others just look like they walked out of a steam room.

    I'm going to have to visit on my next trip to Vegas.
