8 Sep 2014

Madame Tussauds is a hugely popular day out for visitors to Sydney, as it offers them the chance to get up close and personal with facsimiles of the rich and famous.

People of all ages enjoy the opportunity to rub shoulders with everyone from Michael Jackson and Leonardo DiCaprio to Nelson Mandela and Barack Obama.

But visitors are set to be offered an even more memorable experience very soon, with behind the scenes talks taking place from September 20th to October 6th.

This means people can find out all the secrets behind the stunning craftsmanship of the artists at Madame Tussauds and learn all about how they create the remarkable array of lookalikes.

It should perfectly top off a visit to an institution that offers possibly some of the best photo opportunities that any holidaymaker can ask for.

The opportunity to have a picture taken with the president of the United States in the Oval Office or in the company of iconic stars like Marilyn Monroe is hard to pass up.

Behind the scenes talks at Madame Tussauds Sydney are to be held every hour from 11am to 4pm, but it's possibly a good idea to book a spot in advance so you can guarantee entry on the day of your visit.

Once you have secured your place, you can gain a deeper appreciation for the skills and hard work that go into creating such a remarkable attraction.

Madame Tussauds Sydney is divided into eight sections - sport, history, world leaders, music, TV, culture, film and A-listers.

This means there is almost certainly likely to be something that appeals to the whole family and  will give everyone something to get excited about.

Mums and dads should find a new exhibit commemorating the 50th anniversary of The Beatles' arrival in Australia a particular highlight.

Kids, meanwhile, are sure to love a stunning recreation of Katy Perry, which the woman herself has described as a "great identical version of me".ADNFCR-408-ID-801747262-ADNFCR
