Other Tips

If you want to take a photo with Jack Chen or Yao Ming, Beckham and Bruce Lee you should ask the staff in Madame Tussauds to take it for you. You can select the ideal photography style at the entrance but the price of the photo is not cheap. 

You are not allowed to take photo in the “Scream” display hall. This hall is frightening so children below 12 years old and people with heart disease and high blood pressure, elders and pregnant women should be careful.
