Putting the “sound” in “Light, sound and action”, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is set to welcome the first giggling wax figure in its history, featuring Canto-pop’s funny girl Miriam Yeung.

“Miriam is well-known for her fun-loving and bubbly personality, and we want to capture that essence in her figure. I’m sure her fans will feel right at home at Madame Tussauds Hong Kong as Miriam welcomes them with her contagious giggle!” Kelly Mak, Head of Marketing and Customer Services, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong said.

“I am very impressed how detailed the sitting was. I am used to being photographed and measured but this was something else entirely. Even my eyes were compared for color and a cast of my teeth was taken,” Miriam marveled. During the measuring session, sculptors from Madame Tussauds took over 500 measurements of Miriam’s head and famous physique, before standing on a turntable to be photographed from every angle.

Miriam’s wax figure will be dressed in a traditional Chinese outfit, inspired by the classic novel “Legendary Fighter – Yang’s Heroine” which was featured in one of her concerts.

As part of the exciting Peak Tower Renovation, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong recently reopened after a HK$20 million expansion project, building a brand new entrance area on P1 Level of the Peak Tower and adding a further 7000 sq. ft of exhibition space. The new look attraction features over 100 local and international celebrity wax figures with exciting audiovisual effects and interactive experiences.

Originally opened in August 2000, Madame Tussauds Hong Kong is the first permanent Madame Tussauds in Asia and is one of six Madame Tussauds that are located in London, New York, Las Vegas, Amsterdam and Shanghai.

Madame Tussauds Hong Kong welcomes guests from 10am to 10pm daily.
