Wax Museum Invites Guests to Pay Respects to New York City Icon Free of Charge
New York City (Jan. 25, 2021) – Madame Tussauds New York is honoring famed talk show host, Larry King, by placing his figure front and center inside the entrance of the Times Square museum following his passing on Saturday. Guests are invited to pay their respects to the New York City icon by signing a condolence book and pausing for a moment in his honor. There’s no charge to visit his figure. It’s a tradition for Madame Tussauds museums to pay tribute to celebrities and those who’ve made a significant impact on society by featuring their figures in this manner.
King’s figure was unveiled in 2000 at Madame Tussauds New York. Madame Tussauds creative team worked closely with King and took more than 250 precise measurements to create his figure. More than a decade later, in 2011, King posed for a photo with his wax figure during the Hollywood Arts Council's 25th Annual Charlie Awards Luncheon at The Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood, California.
