I got a free ticket with a bus tour and enjoyed myself, but it was smaller than expected. Worth going for free or if you need to be inside.

It was fun to visit Madame Tussauds as something different than the historical trip you get from everything else in DC! It was neat to see all the presidents and take your picture with them! The one thing I thought was kinda lame was that they wouldn't let you take your own pictures with President Obama, in the Oval Office... More

4 adults and 2 children and we all enjoyed this very much. I will say the presidents were very much life like, where as some of the others were off and unrecognizable like Angelina Jole, Jennifer Lopez etc. Taylor Swift was on the money, but we got a lot of good pictures and it was well worth the time spent...

All Madame Tussaud's Museums are great, but this one is unique because the are figures of every single one of the presidents! It is a blast to pose next to each of the statues and get pictures! Love these!

Be ready to take lots of pictures. Our daughters are girl scouts so we bought the scout package for them. The scavenger hunt was great at first, but it soon became a distraction because the wanted to read all about the wax figures. Fine by us, the weren't bored!

My family visited Madame Tussauds in DC. There is a charge but if you buy the tickets in advance online you get quite a good discount. There are many famous wax figures including many presidents and stars. You can take pictures with them. For a charge they will make a wax cast of your hand which we did. My family... More
