Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.
Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. opened its doors on the corner of F and 10th Streets, NW in October 2007 to host a slew of exciting new experiences. Madame Tussauds Washington DC is housed in the historic Woodies Building in the heart of the nation’s capital.
In February 2010, nine new figures of U.S. presidents were unveiled including John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, Chester Alan Arthur, Grover Cleveland and Gerald Ford. Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is well on the way to completing The Presidents Gallery, an interactive exhibit which will feature life-sized wax figures of all 44 Presidents from George Washington to Barack Obama. Immerse yourself in a remarkable three dimensional journey through U.S. history and recreate it as your own.
The fully interactive attraction features exhibits such as “Behind the Scenes,” where visitors are able to learn about the trade secrets used to create Madame Tussauds’ wax figures. The D.C. attraction pays homage to some of the most influential and important political figures in U.S. history from Presidents to activists and assassins to First Ladies. Madame Tussauds Washington DC also features Madame Tussauds’ signature celebrity style with its “Glamour” area that allows guests to rub elbows with Hollywood’s A-list, and a sports exhibit where visitors can get “physical” with their favorite athletic idols.
