Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery because all other forms of flattery are deceitful ruses designed to gain access to pin numbers, better jobs, and fiancés’ hearts. Enjoy wax homages with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get an individual general admission to Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. (up to a $21 value).
Madame Tussauds chronicles history and pop culture through a famous collection of more than 200 startlingly lifelike wax figures, which emulate sports legends, Hollywood stars, cultural figures, and political heroes. Guests study the likeness of Lyndon Johnson and Abe Lincoln, whose figures are posed into their famous fistfight, alongside the other 42 presidents whose soul chariots were waxified for display. A new Harriet Tubman exhibit celebrates the life of the famous abolitionist in time for Black History Month, and a traveling Michael Jackson display explores three different eras of the King of Pop’s career. Curious guests are free to touch the figures, and lean close enough to wax lips to receive whispered assurances that none are actually alive.
Though Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.
Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. escorts guests on an interactive journey through American history. Only here, the past isn't manifested through movies, but through wax. Inside, The President's Gallery brings visitors face-to-face with all 44 US presidents, from Harry Truman to Abe Lincoln and his signature spinning bowtie. Cultural leaders, such as Martin Luther King Jr., stand tall nearby, and rock stars such as Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan compose silent jam sessions in the Music Room. Hollywood stars, sports heroes, and nonpresidential political figures round out the collection, which can be visited 365 days a year.
