Tussauds wanted more. She studied the art of wax sculpture from Curtius, her mother was his housekeeper. After he taught her the art of wax sculpture, she created her first sculpture, the statue of Walter. It was in 1777, and the statue aroused so much enthusiasm that French celebrities asked Tussauds to sculpt them as well. Pretty soon she also sculpted famous celebrities such as Benjamin Franklin and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
In 1792, Tussauds, who inherited the collection of Curtius' sculptures after his death, moved to London, the capital of England, and the Tussauds Wax Museum was born. The museum has gained a reputation as a unique museum and the wax sculptures have gained world renown fame.
The huge success of Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in London led to the opening of Madame Tussauds wax museums all over the world. There are also wax museums in many capital cities around the world, including Vienna, Amsterdam, New York, Berlin, Bangkok and more.
