More than just a wax museum! Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is a fully interactive experience, where visitors are able to touch, see and hear historical icons and celebrities in a way unlike any other Washington D.C. attraction.

It is alright if you are in the area . The museum is small even by wax museum standards . Don't pay for it unless it is part of a package. The exhibits were good quality I just wish there was more to see.

We visited as part of our day in DC. This was fun and engaging [albeit a bit of a wait]. The Obamas & the oval office photo ops were popular. I truly enjoyed the background and tidbits given on the political figures. I thought some...More

My wife and I visited Madame Tussauds DC during our honey moon in the USA. To be fair, it was a great experience. The characters are very real. It's scary sometimes how real they are. We learned a lot about the history and the presidents...More

Brilliant, worth a visit! The Presidents all look very life-like. They have a separate section for Obama (Barack & Michelle) and Trump with a hired photographer, however they are more than happy to take photos with your mobile phone (professional prints are quite expensive). The...More

This museum is much less creepy and features much more history then other similar locations I have visited. Definitely worth a visit!
