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.

We loved it there, just wished there was much more of it! It was quite small for how much you pay for it.

I've been to a few Tussuads museums (NYC, DC, Orlando). They are always fun. DC takes you through all the presidents and historic moments. You'll also find fun celebrities. All make you do a double take if real or not. Great photo opportunities.

The girls were excited to see the wax figures but I expected more. The figures were cool. My favorite was Harriet Gunman, least favorite was Dwayne 'the rock's.

This was the first trip for my husband and son to DC, and they both liked this spot. It was neat to take the pictures up close with the wax figures and they had presidents, sports figures, singers and actors. Nice collection.
