Her early life was spent first in Bern and then in Paris, where she learned the art of wax modeling from Philippe Curtius, for whom Anne-Marie, Marie's mother, acted as housekeeper.

Her marriage in 1795 to François Tussaud, an engineer from Mâcon, was not a success; and in 1802 she took her two sons and her collection of wax models to England.

She served as art tutor at Versailles to Louis XVI’s sister, Madame Élisabeth, and she was later imprisoned as a royalist.

She toured the British Isles for 33 years before finally establishing a permanent home in Baker Street, London, where she worked until eight years before her death.
