If you’re a Marvel fan and you’re headed to Madame Tussauds Hollywood, you’re in for a treat! I’ve got a peek into some of the amazing things happening at the wax museum and things you should see when you visit (including the experience of making a wax hand which should definitely be on your bucket list!).
Thanks to Disney for hosting me as part of this press event in exchange for my coverage.
VISITING MADAME TUSSAUDS HOLLYWOOD
On my very first press trip back in 2012, we visited Madame Tussauds Hollywood. It was only fitting that I mark my 10th trip for Disney with a return the place where I made my debut! I was excited to get another chance to visit the museum and see what was new!
If you’re a Marvel fan, you’ll definitely want to plan a trip to Madame Tussauds wax museum if you’re going to be near Los Angeles anytime soon! There are tons of new things going on, but if you’re a fan of the Marvel Super Heroes 4-D Experience should not be missed. Some of our favorite superheroes have come to life. Check out the cool things you can experience:

- Wax Figures
- Marvel Super Heroes 4-D film
It’s an amazing new way to experience the world of Marvel at Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles!

MADAME TUSSAUDS WAX HAND EXPERIENCE
You can either purchase the Ultimate Experience Package Madame Tussauds tickets or you can pay to do the wax hand experience when you get to the museum. Because we were visiting Madame Tussauds museum to learn more about Avengers: Infinity War, our wax hands were no ordinary wax hands! We were able to create our own Infinity Gauntlet!
You can learn even more about Avengers: Infinity War in our Trinh Tran interview!
In the photos, you’ll see what the wax hand typically looks like. You can pay additional to have a color added to your wax hand as well.
The wax hand experience is really a simple process but it’s also kind of intense. It’s not painful but there were moments of discomfort.
The process went like this — dip your hand in ice water for 30 seconds (until your bones ache basically), then dip your hand in wax. And repeat. You dip back and forth between the ice water and the wax two or three times until the wax is thick enough.
Before you start they coat your hand in lotion so that they can slide the wax hand off of your hand when it’s complete.
Once my hand was free again, the experts at Madame Tussauds took it off to transform it into my very own custom Infinity Gauntlet.
My kids think I’m pretty cool. I have to admit it’s one of the best souvenirs I’ve ever gotten.
Oh, and the wax is very thick and feels pretty durable when you get the finished hand.
I carried mine in my backpack when I got on the plane home and it made it home without a blemish!
MADAME TUSSAUDS HOLLYWOOD WAX FIGURES & ATTRACTIONS
In addition to the wax hand experience, you can also spend as much time as you need to exploring the different themed rooms of wax figures.
