Madame Tussauds San Francisco Getting Harvey Milk Statue
By Lynn De La Cruz
The famed wax museum, Madame Tussauds, is unveiling its Harvey Milk wax figure this Thursday, June 26, for its grand opening at Fisherman's Wharf. Here’s your chance to stand proud, and take a picture, with the gay rights visionary.
Unique to this Madame Tussauds location is the “Spirit of San Francisco” room that takes guests through a portal of history iconic to the Bay. Madame Tussauds described the experience without naming the figures, as visitors should expect to “travel back in time to the era that shaped San Francisco’s liberal attitudes and gave birth to a generation of free thinking idealists and iconic musicians.”
The attraction allows guests to get up close to each wax figure and even touch the intricate details that brings these characters to life. Expect many selfies with A-list stars, sports athletes, historic leaders, and music moguls. Everyone from Rihanna to Mark Zuckerberg are waxed in S.F.
Madame Tussauds San Francisco is located at 145 Jefferson Street. Grand opening hours are 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m on Thursday.
