Madame Tussauds Hong Kong was opened to the public in 2000. Since its opening, this first Madame Tussauds in Asia has drawn the attention of numerous visitors. In Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Hong Kong, Asian figures taking up more than a third of the total, of which sixteen were Hong Kongers. Asian celebrities and superstars have often graced the unveiling of their wax likenesses with sizable groups of their fans tagging along. In September 2005, it began its renovation in its effort to bring an interactive and immersive entertainment experience to visitors. It re-opened on 18 May 2006, adding a further 700 square meters of exhibition space on three floors and six themed areas.

The six themed areas are Hong Kong Glamour, Historical and National Heroes, World Premiere, SCREAM, The Champions and Music Icons. SCREAM is Hong Kong’s first permanent scary attraction. Set against a chilling backdrop of an abandoned asylum. SCREAM promises to stir up humanity’s deepest and darkest fears using a mix of live performers and wax monsters. Visitors can journey through the attraction, stopping to mingle with the 'stars' in a range of themed settings. In over one or more sittings, a highly skilled sculptor from Madame Tussauds Studios who is given direct access to the celebrity will record the colors of the hair and eyes, and over 500 precise body measurements are referenced. Most important is to capture the look of the celebrity in order to reflect the personality of each unique individual.
