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.

Half of the attraction is presidents and important people in historic history. Yawn! Half way through the attraction, the tourists end up in a bottle neck where a line forms to get your pic taken with Trump and Obama. There is no way to tell...More

Okay if I didn't see it I wouldn't have believe it. We got free tickets to the wax museum and it was worth it several of the wax figures were so life like. I enjoyed been so close to these celebrities.

I was fortunately able to get the admission included on a Groupon deal with Big Bus tours but I would've been disappointed had I paid over $40 for just myself and a guest to visit. It was neat, but definitely wouldn't spend that much money...More

Went with my son because he wanted to see this. The wax replicas were impressive. But the wall captions describing the figures were difficult to read, poorly lit, and had many grammatical errors. Really???

This was okay. It is not very big and only takes about 30 minutes to walk through. If you like this kind of stuff then go, but not worth it if you don't love wax museums!

Felt very disappointed in the figures at the Washington Madame Tussauds as they haven't been updated for several years. I hadn't seen the Presidents, apart from JFK, at other Tussauds and they were interesting but for the others, not that there were very many, was...More

I'm not 100 percent sure. But I'm pretty sure you could find a bundle deal or a discount ticket if you buy in advance.
