Was the first wax museum I ever went to. It was interesting to see all the presidents as wax figures. They are done well with a writeup about each president from George Washington to Donald Trump. There are a few sports figures and celebrities, but we're in DC, so presidents are the focus. Was nice. Got the ticket free for riding the Big Bus hop on hop off tour.

Well, I can't imagine that most of you haven't been too, seen or at least talked about Madame Tussauds. We have one in Las Vegas...and it's pretty cool! We had the opportunity to visit the one in DC...and you know is very notable. It centers around all of our past presidents(and current one). Regardless of your political leanings, it is wonderful to see all of our past leaders in one area, interact with them and learn a bit of their history. There is digital content to review, photos to take and audio to enjoy. With a smattering of celebrity as well(good news for Clooney Fans) it was a good time. Reasonably priced at $17 per person after a coupon that can be found any where. This one is not for very young kids however. @Havepursewilltravel Recommends ($)

My niece and I had a good time here. The place was pretty quiet so we were able to see everything up close and personal. They look so real! We paid a bit extra and made wax hands! It was definitely worth it. Great fun here!
