We had entry tickets included in our Big Bus tour so didn't have to pay to enter. The wax models of all the presidents were great and the information along with them was very informative and interesting. The rest of the models were good. It wasn't as good as other madame tussauds I've been to but being in Washington, the... More

It was a very hot week in DC, so we ventured indoors for the Madame Tussaud exhibit. There was a $5 off ticket on our map, so that helped with the over $20 price tag. I was not really looking forward to much, just trying to make my daughter happy, but what I found was pretty interesting. This location has... More

The wax figurines are absolutely stunning and so life like. Yes, the entrance fee is a little steep, but why not give it a try just for once? It will be worth every penny!

I have been to several of the wax museums around, this was extra cool with the granddaughters posing with all their celebs. I enjoyed seeing the presidents and took pics with some of them, I think Beyoncé was the favorite, and were surprised when they really wanted John Stamos and Jimmy Kimmel pictures, they are 9 and 13. It only... More

An interesting display, but much shorter than I expected. Nice job with all the Presidents, but too many statues beyond that. A little expensive for what you got.

We received free tickets to the wax museum with our tickets for the bus tour. The museum was cool very glad that we went. The wax figures were very realistic so that was a bit creepy but we had a very nice time.

Decided to take a break from the standard DC monument tour and have some fun at this museum. It was exactly what we needed and was so much fun. The figures are amazing in their detail. Not a huge museum but loads of fun and definitely worth a visit. Staff are incredibly helpful and enthusiastic.
