More than just a wax museum! Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is a fully interactive experience, where visitors are able to touch, see and hear historical icons and celebrities in a way unlike any other Washington D.C. attraction.

This was just ok. I didn't expect much when I purchased the tickets, but it was something to do. I think the price of admission was higher than it should be. Some of the wax figures were spot on and some were way off. It...More

If you can get admission with a package or Groupon (print voucher in advance) you should be able to get a good deal that’s worth it. Characters look real. You can stand next to them and take your pun pictures. Pictures are available for purchase...More

The museum has an exhibition of the US presidents and major American people. It's not a bad museum, but comparing to the one in London it's very disappointing. We've done it in 45 minutes. It doesn't worth 22$ ticket!

I visited this place couple days ago and I had a great time in it. The wax characters look so real. As a Girl Scout I was greatly surprised to find Baden Powell. In general the place is nice, my only disappointment was that I...More

Lots of wax figures but not as impressive as first hope. Traffic is not time controlled and customer service needs to improve. Bought as part of dc explorer pass and would not return on next trip.

I had a great time their. Even thought the museum is very small the wax figures look very real. All the American presidents under one roof is pretty cool.

I'm not 100 percent sure. But I'm pretty sure you could find a bundle deal or a discount ticket if you buy in advance.
