As an entirely new specialty we make the human body explorable through a virtual reality experience that takes you into the inside of a human body for a closer look at your inner self. You will be amazed! All tickets include a free Audio / Video Guide to download.

What people are saying about Los Angeles

Everyone was helpful and a great place to go with your partner especially if they enjoy cars. The place was mostly showing the history of cars so if you’re expecting something with more modern cars then don’t be surprised if you don’t see em. There were a lot of super cars tho so that was very cool to see! Overall I give it a 8/10!

Lots of fun at Madame Taussades. Lots of great pictures. The figures look amazing and very realistic. There are props and costumes you can use for your picture. We got the deal with lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe, and it was delicious. Great deal!

The guide we had I apologize I don’t remember his name but he was very knowledgeable of the information in regards to the telescope’s and astronomy if was a very good tour I definitely recommend it

This exhibit is definitely a must see!! My favorite part is the flying man and also all the organs.

The visit was very good, the staff was very friendly, I really liked the car collection
