Whether you're visiting the capital or living here, a trip to the legendary Madame Tussauds is a must-do activity. In addition to amazingly lifelike wax figures of your favorite celebrities, like Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce and Rihanna, you'll see an unbelievable collection of historical figures in the Presidents Gallery, housed exclusively at Madame Tussauds in Washington, D.C. Get up close to national icons from the past and present, including Barack and Michelle Obama, Hillary Clinton, Malcolm X, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Jackie Kennedy-Onassis and Rosa Parks. Perhaps best of all, you'll have the chance to pose for photos with many of your favorite figures -- figures so lifelike that people who see your photos just might believe you're hanging out with the stars.
Millions of people have flocked through the doors of Madame Tussauds London since they first opened more than 200 years ago. With museums in the United States and around the world, Madame Tussauds arrived at the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C., in October 2007.
There are many reasons for the museum’s enduring success, but at the heart of it all is good, old-fashioned curiosity. Visitors are sent on a unique journey through the realms of history, power, and fame. Guests can truly get up close and personal with A-list celebrities, sports legends, political heavyweights and historical icons, reliving times, events and moments that made headlines around the world.
Step into the new Presidents Gallery, a permanent exhibition that allows guests to take an immersive, chronological journey through all 44 presidencies and reenact monumental moments in U.S. history. Don’t forget to bring your camera to snap photos with your favorite politicians & cultural icons. Go “behind the scenes” to learn about the painstaking creation, sculpture, and maintenance of Madame Tussauds’ incredibly life-like wax figures, plus the history of founder Marie Grosholtz Tussaud. Finish off your self-guided tour by shaking your booty with Beyonce in the Glamour room with A-List celebrities including Brad and Angelina, Tom Cruise and J-Lo.
