I liked that while going thorugh the museum you could listen to a commentary about a president and as a result got a little education as I went through it. For example. a pres married a 22 yr old in the white house and he was in his 50's and they had 5 children; I think it was Cleveland, impressed.... More

Well, the entire family was not up for the Wax Musuem. However, my 17 year old daughter and my self REALLy enjoyed seeing how the wax figures are made. We also enjoyed being able to have our self-guided tour with our own personal listening devices that they let you use throughout the tour. This is a must see if you... More

We stopped in and thoroughly enjoyed our experience! The kids really enjoyed it and I was surprised how much our 7 year old enjoyed the hand held tour. It was very interesting and made us realize we do not know nearly enough about our presidents. We learned alot! So glad we stopped in!!!! *a terrific KOA perk! Thanks!!!!

I Loved this place and so unexpected; Hollywood meets the Great out Doors! I’m a history buff to begin with and learning about the interesting facts of our Nation’s leaders was quite unique. If one has the time I say go for it and enjoy.

We stopped here after Mt Rushmore one afternoon. We were the only ones in here. I like how the statues are set in a "scene" that depicts what each president is most remembered for. There are audio wands which provide a running commentary. My kids tired of that after the third one. It was a nice 45 minute walk through... More

I had high hopes for the Presidential Wax Museum and I left a little disappointed, but still happy that I went. The wax figures were interesting, as well as the history that was provided with each figure. I thought some of the figures definitely did not resemble the presidents, but that's just my own opinion. The gift shop was also... More

We were able to go to the wax museum for free because we were staying at the Mount Rushmore KOA. All four of us (two in their 50s and two in their 20s) were able to come away from the museum saying we learned something new. It got a little lengthy due to each president having about 2-4 minutes of... More

Our Family ages range from 19-48. We love our American History and we all still learned something. This was a wonderful visual summary of every President administration from Washington to Obama. The staff was friendly and the Audio Tour information was well done. We all enjoyed this visit.
