Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

Istanbul has several local museums of historical and cultural significance, but it also has a plethora of local and international entertainment venues. In Istanbul, the two collide with over 60 almost-real wax figures of local and foreign stars. If you're familiar with Madame Tussauds, you've already seen one, but if you haven't, here's what you need to hear about this incredible museum.

The aura is the first thing you can encounter as soon as you reach the museum. It is not a traditional museum with the traditional Istanbul feeling. A long red carpet invites guests to the venue. The interior design is stunning, and you'll feel like a star when you step inside. You will photograph the models, strike poses for paparazzi, and take selfies with the terrifyingly authentic wax replicas of your beloved celebrities. After soaking up the experience, prepare to explore Madame Tussauds' five distinct sections: History & Leaders, VIP Group, Sport, Culture, Film, and Music, each with its own distinct style and level of interactivity. Visit Istanbul to see the best museums like Madame Tussauds!

Xtrem Aventures Istanbul

In Xtrem Aventures Istanbul, you can find web parkours suited for children aged between 3-8, as well as high rope courses with 4 difficulty levels, for both children aged over 8 and adults. The 180-meter zipline is another thrilling section of the course, but the Fast Jump, in which you let yourself go from 15 meters and gently land on the deck, is the ultimate adrenaline rush.

In Xtrem Aventures Istanbul, try out the online parkour. Kids will begin 10 meters above ground, with no harness to keep them in place! But don't worry; there's a massive spider web underneath them that will catch them even if they slip. However, this does not normally dampen you or your children's curiosity when they step along this tiny yet enjoyable obstacle course. This course is designed for children aged 4 to 8, but you can join your child in the online parkour if you wish to share their excitement. Visit Istanbul for the best Xtrem adventure!
