School Visits & Excursions

COVID-19: Information for Schools

As part of the most recent updates to the containment plan for the Covid-19 coronavirus we have been advised by the Australian Government to temporarily close Madame Tussauds Sydney. The move is consistent with the closure of other venues and postponement of events in order to prevent further outbreak. The closure is effective across all Merlin attractions in Australia as of midday on 23rd March, 2020.  

If you have a school excursion booked with us and think it may be impacted by these measures, please contact a member of our Education Team at They will be able to assist you in providing an alternative date or a refund where appropriate.

To help you during this period of remote learning we have launched Merlin's Education Toolbox, an online hub for teachers and parents with a variety of FREE resources that can be used to supplement lesson plans and provide enriching activities whilst students are at home. Check it out at

Madame Tussauds Sydney combines the glitter and glamour of the world’s most famous faces, with an interactive educational experience.

Take your students on a fair-dinkum trip down under and say “G’Day” to the Aussie’s that have helped shape this great southern land. Plus, with over 85 figures and 10 interactive themed zones, students will also come face to face with international celebrities and icons important to Australia’s film, TV, music, sport and cultural history.
