Madame Tussauds is always well worth seeing,wherever you are.
The only thing I would say is that they insist that you need to provide a paper voucher, a electronic one is no good.
I think in this day and age that is a little backward...
I like this wax museum better than others as you can get up close and personal with the figures.
Took 2 of my Grandchildren to Washington DC as graduation presents.
They loved the museum. My grandson loved posing with the characters.
This will be a permanent stop for future vacations
This was our last stop on our tour of DC and it was great fun. Having the tickets ahead of time made it super easy to get in. Had a lot of fun taking pictures with the Presidents and J Edgar Hoover :
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!
The experience of seeing and learning about all the US presidents and the other influential people,from the areas of the military, civil rights and politics that had an impact on the US and helped shaped some of our laws was truly enjoyable and educational.
It was very interesting to see all the american presidents. There is also the possibility to make your own wax hands 10 . We have done this and it was quite funny.
We spent great time there.
I recommend it.
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.
Very good history lesson about presidents. Some models very life like, others were a stretch. The viewing areas were too crowded to get value from the tour.
