The museum used wands to provide a selfguiding tour. It was long and the wax figures were average. All in all it was informative but dull

This place has a few amazing scenes set up including President Bush addressing the workers at Ground Zero and LBJ being sworn in on Air Force One.

As is always the case, some of the figures uncannily resembled the presidents while others were a bit of a stretch. The... More

We would not have come here if we didn't have a deal from the KOA that we stayed at. Was pleasantly surprised at how well it was done. Even my teen boys enjoyed it.

It was fun seeing the Presidents as they were when they were in the White House instead of as old men.

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.
