"I visited Madame Tussauds San Francisco today and had a memorable time. The lifelike wax figures, particularly the movie stars and historical figures, were truly impressive. The interactive exhibits, like the 'selfie with celebrities' corner, added a fun element to the visit. Overall, it's a must-visit for wax figure enthusiasts, but plan your visit strategically." Remember, the key is to provide useful information to others considering a visit, helping them make an informed decision. I took selfies with my favorite celebrities and legends too.

This is my husband and I second visit to a Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum. The first one that we visited was in Los Angeles. We had fun at this one but it was not as big as the one in L.A. We were in and out in 30 minutes this included is stopping and taking photos with the wax figures. There are figures in this one that weren’t in the LA one. It’s definitely worth a visit. However, I will recommend trying to find a deal for this attraction on Groupon as I did so that you feel that you got your money’s worth. The Groupon will save you a significant amount of money. Lastly, parking in San Francisco is scarce so I would recommend parking at a nearby lot which will cost $9 an hour and walking to it. We parked in the Pier 39 parking lot. However, with the way people drive in San Francisco and the pedestrians who don’t obey the “Walk” and “Don’t walk” signs, I would recommend Uber or Lyft. It’s less stressful and just might save you money because it’s a lot to do in that area that’s in walking distance and you can easily find yourself there 3 hours.

It’s a must go. The Dungeon is quite exciting, the actors are professional and you get to learn something about the history of San Francisco.

I expected more. I’ve been to several and this one seemed like it had a lot less than the others that I have been to.

I've been to several Madame Tussauds all over the world and this one seemed fairly small and not really worth the price. It has what you would expect, celebrity wax statues and fun photo ops, which is what I love about MTs. This location just seemed really small and at almost $100 for a combo ticket with Ripley's, it's pretty pricey. Definitely could be a good option if it's a rainy day.

Ripley's however is definitely a cool stop. Much more interactive and if you stopped to read everything, you could be in there for hours.

Zendaya 😍 was my favorite part, but I loved the local SF celebrities like Harvey Milk and Joseph Strouse. Cool history I didn’t know a lot about.

Cool, in a creepy way. Pretty small for the price. It took us like a half hour to go through while taking pics. I would say 30 figures? Some of the figures are not recognizable without plaque telling you who they are. We were like the 4th people in, which made it better.
