Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.

Last month during my trip to Washington D.C., I had the wonderful opportunity to visit Madame Tussauds (special thanks to the amazing folks at Madame Tussauds DC for providing me with complimentary tickets!) Whenever I visit New York City, I always say I’m going to check out Madame Tussauds but I never seem to have the time (I’m always to busy museum hopping or seeing a broadway show or two) so I made it my mission to stop by when I was in D.C. Since I’d never been to Madame Tussauds (or any wax figure museum for that matter) before, I was really excited to see what it would be like!Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.Madame Tussauds Marilyn Monroe Wax Figure
Right in front of Madame Tussauds DC, there’s a Marilyn Monroe wax figure (and a line to get a picture with her) waiting outside to greet you. Madame Tussauds is separated into six main exhibits: the Presidents Gallery, the Civil Rights Room, Behind the Scenes, the Glamour Room, the Sports Zone and finally the Media Room!

I got to ‘meet’ all 44 presidents in the Presidents Gallery! Here’s a few of my favorite presidential pics:

After visiting the Presidents Gallery, I headed over to the Civil Rights Room where you get to take a seat in history next to Rosa Parks and join Martin Luther King Jr. as he prepares to give his “I Have A Dream” speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial!

Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. Einstein Wax Figure
Albert Einstein was weirdly in between the Presidential Gallery and Civil Rights Room (there were a few other random historical figures scattered throughout Madame Tussauds) but his figure was just to cool not to include! Up next was the Glamour Room where guests get to mix and mingle with some of Hollywood’s A-list celebrities!

For some reason I didn’t get to many pictures from the Sports Zone (I guess it’s because I’m not a huge sports fan and didn’t know most of the people being portrayed) but I did manage to get a picture of Whitney Houston singing the National Anthem at Super Bowl XXV!

I finished off my Madame Tussauds visit with a little trip to the Media Room where you can get interviewed by Katie Couric or have a chat with Stephen Colbert!

Have you ever been to Madame Tussauds or any wax museum? Which of these wax figures do you think most accurately depicts their famous counterpart?
