The figures are remarkable and so life like from their eyes to their skin. They had a Presidential Gallery including every President and some first ladies. You are allowed to touch and have your picture with any of the figures. My son sat at Fords Theatre with Lincoln and I was at Appomattox with Grant and Lee. They also had... More

We visited and saw all the presidents of the US and at the end I realized that they were all men, so far. President Obama broke the racial barrier that had existed since we had Presidents. His popularity of the crowd made a line to be photographed with him. James Madison was the smallest in stature. They were for the... More

it was nice to see some of the most influential people in history in life size form. i seriously question how real their 'dimensions' were. not sure if they were supposed to be life size replicas, but it was awesome to look in to the eyes of some of the most influential people in history.

While the DC wax museum is smaller than the one in NYC it was fun taking pictures with the different wax statues. We went around pretending to photo-bomb different celebrities - very fun!

My son and I visited this on Sunday as part of a 3 pack tour (Madame Tussaud, Spy, Crime Punishment), and we enjoyed this one more then the rest. Being in Washington there is a large focus on Presidents, with all of them represented. Spent about an hour and took lots of pictures. The figures did allow for some discussion... More

Not the best Tussauds I have visited. I got the ticket free withe Big Bus Package and I am glad as I would have been disappointed if I had paid full entry into this attraction. Went round very quickly as too many presidents and not enough other statues.

I got free entry to the wax works as part of my big bus tour and enjoyed my visit. It's only small so didn't take too long to get found all the exhibits. There were some very realistic wax works. I particularly liked the bit which told the story of Madame Tussaud.

We visited Madame Tussaud's as we were given tickets as part of our bus tour. It is ok but certainly not worth the money they are charging.
