Indian Railways signs an MoU with Madame Tussauds Wax Museum to foster tourism

New Delhi (Urban Transport News): The Ministry of Railways’ National Rail Museum (NRM) and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum join hands together to provide an amazing combo offer to Delhi NCR tourists. As a part of the collaboration, a special discount of 35% on ticket prices will be offered to the Museum visitors when they visit the Madame Tussauds Museum. Similarly, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum visitors will be getting an attractive discount of 30% on combo packages of the National Rail Museum. 

It is envisaged that this innovative, first time ever, public-private museum collaboration, shall attract more tourists to both National Rail Museum and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. In this regard, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between Ministry of Railways and Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. Secretary, Railway Board, Shri Ranjanesh Sahai, Director & General Manager of Madame Tussauds, Shri Anshul Jain, Sr. Officials of Ministry of Railways and other dignitaries were also present on the occasion.

In addition, there will be a special provision for school groups. School children will be able to enjoy both museums at a 45% discount. This will help in promoting railway heritage and also enable children to learn about national heroes, thereby making the student excursion more inclusive, holistic and interesting. Delhi has many popular museums but most of them require individual ticketing. The broader vision of this collaboration is to spread the concept of a discounted single ticket for accessing more museums, even spanning over 3-4 days.

This will not only be convenient for tourists, but it will also promote the tourism industry. A similar facility is already available in major tourist cities across the world. The National Rail Museum (NRM), managed by Indian Railway, is one of the top edutainment tourist destinations of Delhi NCR area having an annual footfall of more than 5 lakhs. NRM offers railway history, heritage, nostalgia, games & children activity all bundled together at one place. (with PIB inputs)
