I visited other wax museums and I found this one to be a bit smaller than the others. We enjoyed the fact that there were no long lines to get in the building.

My kids just loved it! The exhibit starts with all of the presidents and some information about each. There is also some information about Madame Tussaud and her start making death masks for those executed by the guillotine. They had a variety of other well known people such as the British Royals,Rosa Parks, Samuel L Jackson, Taylor Swift, George Clooney,... More

Real high quality replica of original people. Most of the time you feel the person is real. Must see place if you are in DC.

Located one block away from Ford's Theater, this was our first trip to any MT wax museum. It has the only collection of all 44 presidents--very cool. This collection alone is a very good educational experience for the kids when coming to DC. Buy tickets online and you can get a great discount!

The wax museum was awesome. The presidential exhibit was great. At the end you get to take a picture with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama. The exhibits are up to date and you get to take as many pictures as you want.

I have been to a couple of Madame Tussaud's - NY & DC. I have always liked the DC edition although its small when compared to NY but its less expensive and here they provide props for taking pictures. I would say that Madame Tussaud's is all about admiring the statues and taking pictures with the celebrities. So feel free... More

I'm not sad that we went but the tickets were super pricey and the museum is small. They had the usual suspects like Oprah and Obama....but a lot of the other ones were less notable. If it is raining and you have nothing else to do, I'd go. Otherwise, I'd skip it.

I've enjoyed Madame Tussaud's wax museums since I visited my first one in Las Vegas back in the 90s. Since then I have visited the original Madame Tussaud's in London and the one in New York as well.
