The London-based Madame Tussauds wax museum was set to open the branch in Beijing in May 2014 amid China's growing tourist market fueled by a booming middle class.
The Beijing branch of the museum, located on Qianmen, one of the oldest shopping streets in the capital, will feature celebrities, Chinese politicians, and music and movie stars, both domestic and international, with eight exhibition areas including China's spirit, political leaders, sports stars and famous singers.
In recent years, the British amusement venue operator Merlin Entertainments Group has been speeding up efforts to expand its presence in China by opening a number of museums in China, including Hong Kong, Shanghai, Wuhan and Xiamen.
Suggestion: After Visiting this place, you can have a visit to Qianmen Street, Qianmen Street has history of more than 570 years. It was called Zhengyangmen Street during the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and finally got the present name in 1965. During the Qing Dynasty, there were many specialized outlets on either side of it, such as a meat market, cloth market and jewelry market. And there were also many craftsman workshops, warehouses and theatres in the Hutongs nearby. Now Qianmen Street becomes an important night life place for locals.

Introduction about the Tusa Wax Museum
The museum, which has long been famous in Europe, opened in 1835. Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is the first one opened in China, and the number of visitors has grown sevenfold since it opened in 2000.
Marie Tussaud was born as Marie Grosholtz in 1761 in Strasbourg, France. Her mother worked as a housekeeper for Dr. Philippe Curtius in Bern, Switzerland, who was a physicianskilled in wax modeling.
Curtius taught Tussaud the art of wax modelling. He moved to Paris and took his young apprentice, only 6 years old, with him.Tussaud created her first wax sculpture in 1777 of Voltaire.
At the age of 17 she became the art tutor to King Louis XVI of France’s sister, Madame Elizabeth, at the Palace of Versailles. During the French Revolution she was imprisoned for three months awaiting execution, but was released after the intervention of an influential friend.
Other famous people whom she modelled included Jean-Jacques Rousseau and Benjamin Franklin. During the Revolution, she modelled many prominent victims.
She inherited the doctor's vast collection of wax models following his death in 1794, and spent the next 33 years travelling around Europe. She married Francois Tussaud in 1795, and the show acquired a new name: Madame Tussaud's.
In 1802, she accepted an invitation from Paul Philidor, a magic lantern and phantasmagoria pioneer, to exhibit her work alongside his show at the Lyceum Theatre, London. She did not fare particularly well financially, with Philidor taking half of her profits.
She was unable to return to France because of the Napoleonic Wars, so she traveled throughout Great Britain and Ireland exhibiting her collection. From 1831, she took a series of short leases on the upper floor of "Baker Street Bazaar" (on the west side of Baker Street, Dorset Street, and King Street), which later featured in the Druce-Portland casesequence of trials of 1898–1907. This became Tussaud's first permanent home in 1836.

By 1835, Marie had settled down in Baker Street, London and opened a museum.
One of the main attractions of her museum was the Chamber of Horrors. The name is often credited to a contributor to Punch in 1845, but Marie appears to have originated it herself, using it in advertising as early as 1843.
This part of the exhibition included victims of the French Revolution and newly created figures of murderers and other criminals. Other famous people were added, including Lord Nelson and Sir Walter Scott.
