Madame Marie Tussaud was imprisoned during the French Revolution, and came to prominence when she began to make death masks of guillotined aristocrats. In 1803, she journeyed to London and exhibited many of her waxworks in Baker Street. The attraction proved very popular, giving visitors the chance to see the faces behind the famous names they'd heard so much about. Although today's waxworks focus on a somewhat less macabre subject, the appeal of Madame Tussauds endures. There are now over 21 Madame Tussauds museums worldwide.
