Orlando Attractions for Families
- Tuesday August 22nd 2023
Madame Tussauds is a renowned wax museum showcasing some of the most influential individuals worldwide. From political figures to pro athletes, our museum is one of the best Orlando attractions for families. It would be best to understand a few things, including what to expect, our operating hours, and how to get here before your visit. So here’s a preparation guide to help you and your loved ones or students curate the best experience at Madame Tussauds.
Before You Arrive
Is this your first time visiting Madame Tussauds? If so, there are a few things to note before your visit. First, we encourage all our visitors to pre-book tickets. Also, it’s best to check our website on the day of your visit for the latest information about our wax museum. Secondly, be prepared to use contactless forms of payment as our attraction only allows credit or debit cards. Additionally, our museum monitors the capacity inside our attraction to ensure visitors have an amazing experience. For this reason, people who plan to buy gate tickets are not guaranteed admission.
Directions & Parking
Getting to Madame Tussauds is straightforward. We are on International Drive in the ICON Park Complex (formerly known as ICON Orlando 360). Therefore, if you are a tourist staying on International Drive, you only need to walk to our museum. Plus, if you plan to visit other Orlando attractions for families, for instance, the Orange County Convention Center, it will take you five minutes to get here from there by car.
Our operating hours vary depending on whether it’s a weekday or weekend. Opening times are typically between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. We encourage you to visit our website to plan your day.
Our attraction aims to accommodate all guests. All areas are wheelchair-accessible. Moreover, our trained staff will help you should you require our support. We allow service animals inside Madame Tussauds. Even so, you must always ensure the animal remains on a leash.
Moreover, we have a sensory guide available on our website, which can be helpful to parents, teachers or anyone with a loved one who has sensory concerns. Our website is also accessible to all.
