In the heart of Hollywood, adjacent to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, the new Madame Tussauds Hollywood is the first-ever to be built from the ground up. This 44,000-square-foot, $55 million, three-story building is home to more than 100 celebrity wax figures that cost up to $300,000 each to create. Lifelike wax figures on display include famous icons: Vivien Leigh, President Barack Obama, Marilyn Monroe, Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Kobe Bryant, Zac Efron, and many more. Guests can interact with their favorite celebrities without velvet ropes or barriers. The wax figures are artfully displayed in 14 themed areas including the Red Carpet, A-List Party, Spirit of Hollywood, Westerns, Crime, Modern Classics, Making Movies, American Idol, Sport, Action Heroes, Behind the Scenes, and Awards Ceremony.
