“Great! Great! Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2008

This attraction is a must see. My husband and I went to the National Presidential Wax Museum on our way to Mt. Rushmore. We've been to a lot of wax museums and this tops them all. The wax figures look so real. It's a history lesson that's also entertaining. I highly recommend this attraction.

“History Lesson”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2008

If anything, this was a history lesson. The size of the presidents seemed small in general, but again, it gives you info about each president and of that particular time in America. It is not a grand museum--suggested only if you wish to learn something.

“Worth seeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2007

Each person receives an audio remote, then types in the number assigned for each display, so everyone can proceed at their own pace. It would have been nice if there were a few more chairs provided in the museum, so you could sit and listen. The history of each president was interesting to hear, but some of the latter wax figures weren't as impressive as the earlier presidents. My sister wasn't thrilled when I picked this attraction, but later admitted that she enjoyed it. You are allowed to take pictures, so bring along your camera. I'd definitely recommend this attraction to others.

“Wax Museum - Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2006

Wax Museum was interesting. Aduio tour added nice touch to really learning about presidents. Staff was very pleasant and helpfull.

Don't bother with the cafe (The Executive Grill) next door though. Expensive and slow, especially on breakfast items. Server seemed like she wasn't interested.
