Louis Tussauds House of Wax in Norfolk to close due to 80-year-old owner's retirement



I was sad to read that Norfolk's answer to Madame Tussauds is closing. The couple who run the Louis Tussauds in Great Yarmouth are now in their 80s and plan to retire. The place has a cult following and has previously won the title of "worst waxworks of all time". Generally the dummies have the right clothes, but the similarities stop there.

Here is a great one of Michael Jackson looking like Harry Styles:


The museum is now closed for the 2012 season but let's hope they have one more run next year. Mrs Hayes, one of the owners, says they are definitely open to offers for buying the business - Let's hope Damien Hirst of perhaps Jake and Dinos Chapman are reading.
