We love to go to Madame Tussauds in any city we visit so Washington was a go to for us. Of all the ones we've been to this probably was the biggest let down. It had some political figures but not some we expected. It...More

I thought it was just a presidential museum but it was actually history in general. My girlfriend and i loved it. We went back around again to see one more time. 😂

No line, walked right in. The displays are nicely done. Lots of selfie opportunities. People who take the photos that you would pay for were really good about also taking photos with your own camera

Very nice selection of personalities and celebrities. Some were eerily lifelike and some were... not real looking. Overall, we were pleased with the trip. Friendly employees.

This was included in the cost of the city bus tour. The bus takes you there, you see the wax figures and then get on another bus when you are done. I visited WA DC in October when it wasn't very busy. I'm not sure if there... More
