I expected more from the museum,there was just one floor in the basement for the display .Only the U.S Presidents and a few movie stars to name a few were the main display .Parking in that location was a disaster, so we ended up looking for a lot.However it was a fun trip!

It was neat to see all the presidents but it was a 30 minute walk through. For us 22$ was to much for such a short time.

Immediately upon descending the stairs to the basement location we were struck by the ill smell of sewer or something rotten. We waited for the informative video to begin but since we started it halfway through, it wasn't very clear whether we should be waiting for it to restart. We decided to enter the exhibits but my young boys found... More

I was really impressed with the likeness of a lot of the wax figures. The museum has a nice flow and it never felt crowded going from one room to the next. It took us a minute to figure out we could stand close to the figures to take pictures. I really like bringing my daughter here to see all... More

this is one of the museums in DC that cost to get in. buy your ticket online, you will save money! I bought mine on my smartphone once we got there, tickets came right up to be scanned, easy! with a family of 4 (and a toddler) we probably save about $20 buying online. you can take pics with all...

My daughter and I visited Madame Tussaud's DC on our last morning there. We had a lot of fun. Most of the people that came at the Mae time just breezed through the museum, but I think, if you really want to get your money's worth out of it, you should take advantage of the props and little photo-op stops...

What a great time we had and what a wonderful location to party. With the staff being totalled focused on our group, we had the run of the place. The Presidential Gallery was awesome as was the celebrity... More

We attended an Inaugural Ball at Madame Tussauds which made it convenient to really view the figures without being rushed. It is amazing how life-like they are. But, they need to work on President Trump's hair. They don't quite have that down yet.

Went to Madame Tussauds DC with my young family and they loved the experience. The highlight is the roll call of the POTUS which the kids enjoyed and found very educational. Kids enjoyed posing with these historic figures are looking forward to sharing the photos with their friends.
