No velvet ropes or barriers here—at this interactive wax museum in Hollywood, getting close to some of the most recognizable people in the world isn’t seen as a violation; in fact it’s encouraged. More than 125 lifelike figures from the worlds of film, TV, music, sports, and even superheroes are on display at Madame Tussaud's Hollywood, and the likenesses can be downright eerie. You might have to pinch Anne Hathaway to make sure she’s not real—credit that to the meticulous work of the museum’s highly trained sculptors, who have collectively created wax figures of real people for more than 200 years. Don’t leave until you’ve had the chance to shoot hoops with Kobe Bryant, sidle up to Johnny Depp, and perform onstage with Rihanna.
