Madam Tussaud’s Wax Museum Coming Here it comes, the famous European Queen of wax, Madame Tussaud’s Museum. The building is going up as you can see, but my, what a strange looking joint. No classical class, no Euro lines, kinda weird angles devoid of those great euro palaces of sacred geometry where we expect the life-like figures of the famous and the mysterious. Maybe the inside will look a little better??? Will they sent Uncle Paulie and crew of What Up Hollywood a ticket to a sneak peek? Nope.
