Madame Tussauds DC, Washington DC

3.5
Madame Tussauds DC offers a large collection of wax figures beyond just celebrities. While the brand has locations around the world, this one features the Presidents Gallery, showcasing all 44 presidents of the United States in wax form. You'll see them as you tour the 14 themed rooms for an educational look at the history of the country. In the Civil Rights Room, meet the important figures in the fight for racial equality. A wax model of Rosa Parks refuses to give up her seat on a Montgomery bus, and Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks his influential words, "I have a dream," right in front of you. The wax museum also contains models of star athletes and famous actors. Plan to visit Madame Tussauds DC during your Washington DC vacation using our convenient Washington DC trip planner .

  • That was an amazing experience. My Wife and I saw it while we were walking to Fords theater and decided to take a peak. After entering they had SO MANY cool things in there. My wife and I stopped at every station they had and admired everything. We took tons of picture so I will try and share a few of them! They also have where you can take pictures with the presidents and purchase them after for a rather decent price.
  • Worth the money. The wax people are so life-like it's crazy. I've been to other places and they do not compare. Was a great bonus to our DC trip.
