Great wax figures...especially of all 44 presidents! They also just added some members of the British Royal Family that you can get your pictures taken with. No problems with the online ticket purchase, either. Just elk on up to the counter, and you're admitted!

I've enjoyed Madame Tussaud's wax museums since I visited my first one in Las Vegas back in the 90s. Since then I have visited the original Madame Tussaud's in London and the one in New York as well. The DC incarnation is divided evenly between history all the presidents of the United States and a few other historical figures as well and current celebrities that have entertained presidents or participated in events in our nations capital at some point. I saw wax sculptures of the presidents at another wax museum near Mount Rushmore but I think the sculptures at this Madame Tussaud's looked more realistic and much more like formal portraits of the presidents I have seen. As for the celebrities, I think I liked the figure of Michael Jackson best, having the most expression on his face and in his pose. The George Clooney and Julia Roberts figures appear to be copies of the sculptures in the same poses that I saw in London. I think the figures of John F. Kennedy and Jaqueline were also quite similar to those in London although I thought our JFK seemed a little more natural.

Of course I was quite excited to see the sculptures of Barak and Michelle Obama and the warrior prince Harry and the new Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton. I also thought the figure of Queen Elizabeth II had more of a sparkle in her eyes than the one I had seen in London.

My only disappointment was that the Obamas and British royals were behind a barrier in the photo session promotional area and the photographer there would not let me take individual photos of them when I went into the area to have my picture taken.

Overall, though, I enjoyed myself immensely as I was sure I would!

This museum is definitely a must see for anyone in Washington DC. You are "up close and personal" with a lot of ability to make any picture you want them to be. An amazing museum. Will be going back on our next trip!

My daughter and I took this tour and thought it was neat but were upset that Johnny Depp's wax figure wasn't on display one of the reasons we booked the tour in the first place.

It was a self-guided tour, however, worth booking in advance.

While the exhibits were very good, was disappointed that it was not a larger exhibition, still we enjoyed what we saw.

Other than the Hall of Presidents there really is nothing there. The pop culture section is extremely weak.
