Madame Tussauds wax museum to open in Dubai

The world’s most famous faces – and a few reality TV stars – are coming to Dubai as Madame Tussauds opens its famous Wax Museum in the city.

The waxworks museum is set to open at Bluewaters Dubai later this year.

And they’ve confirmed that 60 global superstars will be on show when they open after the summer. And they’ve included 16 brand new wax figures of famous Middle East faces as well.

Madame Tussauds Dubai will be split into different categories including Leaders, Film, Fashion, Bollywood, Sport, Music, and Party. Among those confirmed to be featured are Shahrukh Khan, model Cara Delevingne and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The world famous wax museum has 21 branches across the world including six in the USA and museums in Beijing, Tokyo and Sydney, Australia.

This will be the first in the Middle East, however. And we’re sure the Insta-friendly Dubai public will soon be snapping up selfie after selfie with the famous wax work figures.

The next UAE public holiday is here in under a month

The next public holiday in the UAE is less than a month away with the arrival of Eid Al Adha which is likely to start on Monday, July 19.

As those who have lived in Dubai for a while will know, the exact date will only be known once the moon-sighting committee has done its work.

But the Eid Al Adha holiday could last a whole week!

UAE residents are likely to get Arafat Day on July 19 off plus an extra three days for Eid. That takes us until Thursday, July 22 when it’s the weekend.

Six day public holiday in the UAE, anyone?

Eid is often known as the festival of the sacrifice. And coincides with the Hajj pilgrimage to Makkah.

It’s normally a large social occasion but it’s expected the UAE government will once more urge families to avoid large gatherings to help the Covid-19 situation.
