Madame Tussauds Washington DC offers a large collection of wax figures beyond just celebrities. While the brand has locations around the world, this one features the Presidents Gallery, showcasing all 44 presidents of the United States in wax form. You'll see them as you tour the 14 themed rooms for an educational look at the history of the country. In the Civil Rights Room, meet the important figures in the fight for racial equality. A wax model of Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus, and Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks his influential words, "I have a dream," right in front of you. The wax museum also contains models of star athletes and famous actors.

Where to stay in Washington DC

Most visitors to Washington, D.C., end up in the East End, the old downtown district containing most of the city's major cultural attractions. For a more authentic Washingtonian experience, consider staying at a smaller hotel just a little north or east of this busy area. Neighborhoods outside downtown offer less expensive accommodations and affordable street parking, as well as opportunities to meet more locals and fewer tourists. Alternatively, try a hotel in Georgetown, packed with high-end shops and Colonial architecture.

  • A mixed bag. Some figures are spot on, and many disturbingly lifelike. But a large part of the exhibit is devoted to showing every single US president, and I'm not really going to know if Franklin Pierce or Benjamin Harrison is really accurate. By contrast, some of the more modern figures, whose images we've seen in detail, seemed a bit off. A fine, if somewhat expensive, diversion for the family. But certainly not a must-have.
  • The place is good, the price is a bit high. The staff is definitely not helpful. All the president of united States are present. It would take some money for the photo with the current president. Not worth the money so make sure you take your own. Picture
  • The wax figures were so life like. You could stand next to them and interact. Lots of interactive stations . My grandchildren & I loved the history. Part of the Big Bus Tours what a gem.
  • FANTASTIC place to visit great work on statues you can interact with figures. GET your picture taken with the president sit at desk in oval office have your picture taken and also at a white house press conference. ALL AROUND fun time
  • The statues of the US presidents look awesome and well made. Some of them look so life-like. However the ones belonging to the singers and movie stars dont seem very convincing.
