I went to Madame Tussauds in England when I was a child. It was a very strange experience! Do you expect it will be popular when it opens?

Hmmm, I usually avoid the touristy museums because they cost an arm and a leg, but maybe I’ll make an exception! I’m actually heading to India soon, so I may add it to my list!
