ICT Activity - 6th primary

Today we've visited the London Dungeon and the wax museum of Madame Tussauds, also in London.

The London Dungeon is a very popular tourist attraction which recreates various gory and macabre historical events in a grimly comedic "gallows humour" style. attempting yo make them appealing to younger audiences, It uses a mixture of live actors, special effects and rides.
Madame Tussauds is a wax museum in London with branches in a number of major cities. It was founded by wax sculptor Marie Tussaud. Madame Tussaud is also a major tourist attraction in London, displaying waxworks of historical and royal figures, film stars, sports stars and famous murderers.
