Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is located in The Venetian in the Grand Canal Shoppes, yet getting to the attraction during Formula 1 Las Vegas may be a little different. . Look for us under the bell tower, just across The Strip from The Mirage. Please see below for how to get to Madame Tussauds Las Vegas during Formula 1® Las Vegas by foot, car, monorail, bus and taxi:

Walking - We are just up the moving walkways under the green and white awnings by the Campanile Tower (brick bell tower) and fountain. Any resort located within the circuit, including The Venetian, will require a pass or proof of reservation (room, restaurant, show) for entry. 

Car + Rideshare  - Roads will begin to close at 5pm PT every day throughout the race period and will not open until 2am PT. Inbound lanes will be closed first to let the cars filter out. Outbound lanes will be closed as soon as all vehicles have been cleared. We highly recommend taking the monorail during Formula 1 Las Vegas.

Parking - Self parking and valet options are available at The Venetian but space may be limited during this time frame. From the parking garage, pass through the Grand Canal Shoppes towards Tao and the Strip. Exit the bank of doors in the atrium and turn left. We are just over the moving walkways at the Ponte Rialto (large bridge by the Strip).

Monorail - Madame Tussauds is just a short walk away from the Harrah's stop on the Las Vegas Monorail. Once you arrive at the station, pass through Harrah's to the Strip, turn right towards the Stratosphere, and pass by Casino Royale, and the Walgreens and Denny's building. We are just up the moving walkways, under the green and white awnings by the Campanile Tower (brick bell tower).

Bus - The Las Vegas Strip is serviced by the RTC's Deuce and SDX buses. Bus services will be interrupted and bus riders should expect major delays. Please visit the below link for more information about bus travel interruptions caused by Formula 1 Las Vegas:
