Madame Tussauds is to open in Budapest soon!


The world’s first fully-franchised Madame Tussauds wax museum will open in Budapest in 2022. 

It was assigned to open in the first quarter of 2022, but it’s not open to the public yet. 

We can expect the wax museum’s opening in Hungary’s capital anytime soon. 

The soon-to-open museum will be spread across 2000 square meters. 

It will provide an interactive tourist spot for foreigners and nationals to appreciate the various exhibits at Madame Tussauds. 

What to expect at Madame Tussauds Budapest

You can meet the real-life wax models of more than 50 of your favorite personalities at Madame Tussauds in Budapest. 

This agreement between Merlin Entertainment and the Doroyotto Experience Kft brand owners will revive the tourism industry of Hungary after the pandemic. 

The opening of a fully franchised Madame Tussauds wax museum in Budapest aims to present the famous leaders, local historians, and Celebrities to International and national stars to the public in various interactive exhibits. 

What will be the location

Madame Tussauds Budapest will be located in the City center, on Dorottya Street, near the Vörösmarty square of Budapest, Hungary. 

It’s less than 3 minutes away from the Pest end of the China Bridge. 

The economic impact of its opening

According to various domestic investors, this will diminish the gap between experience-based tourism in Budapest. 

According to, this project’s investment cost can cross 28.8 Million Euros. 

Madame Tussauds at Budapest is the world’s first fully franchised Madame Tussauds. 

When Doroyotto’s Brand Owners reached out for this project, Merlin Entertainment had already been eyeing the Hungarian capital. 

The Hungarian Tourism Agency supported the project with HUF 3.1 Billion., which will be paid back to the State in 6-7 years. 

Domestic and foreign interest is essential for the owners of the brand owners of both Doroyotto Experience Kft and Merlin Entertainment. 

Hence, they held surveys to decide which figures to showcase at the wax museum. 

They soon realized that the people considered the wax models to be “sculptures” and had a preference for historical figures. 

Foreigners would find Historical Hungarian figures; hence, this attraction will offer something new to foreigners while showcasing some A-list celebrities and globally loved personalities.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            This museum will create a way for various tourists to have a fun, experience-based tourist spot in the heart of Hungary’s capital. 

Hungary ranks as the fourth country with rapidly increasing tourist traffic in Europe, making it a great spot for Madame Tussauds!

How are the wax models created? 

A lot of work needs to be done while opening a Madame Tussauds museum, and most important is to create a collection of wax statues.

Firstly, they will make the wax models at Acton, London. 

While the wax models are being “Handmade”, they will prepare for the museum in Budapest. 

The Hungarian creative team will research local myths and details to provide an accurate representation of each puppet further. 

The puppets will then be carefully transported to Budapest, and a team of 20 will install them inside the museum. 

Madame Tussauds Budapest’s opening is expected to be grand and successful and appeal to each visitor. 

You can see, touch, hug and click pictures with some of the well-known personalities in the world. 

Stay tuned to see the most brilliant wax figurines of celebrities and influential leaders throughout the history of Hungary at Madame Tussauds Budapest. The world’s first fully franchised Madame Tussauds is awaiting its opening. Bookmark this article for further updates!
