Tussaud’s Wax Museum
There have been lots of murmurs and rumours as these two huge statues went up on 5th Avenue and 14 bis. Well, the wait is over and it has now been revealed that Playa del Carmen will be joining major cities such as Niagara Falls, Atlantic City and Pattaya in having its very own Louis Tussaud Wax Museum. Rene Asis, the director of the establishment, stated that “Fifth Avenue is internationally famous, but we felt that it lacked one more component of family entertainment, that's why we made the decision to found the wax museum Louis Tussaud’s”. This exciting new attraction will have over 100 different wax statues of famous actors, musicians, sports stars and even political figures.
