We all enjoyed the exhibit. I have 3 kids 13,11 and 9 and we enjoyed walking and listening to historical tour. The only thing we didn't like was there was no Obama wax statue.More

Check the website for the opening and close time, they have strict rules, I was lucky for the last moment, take the first photo with the president. Although it is short, but informative and wonderful, it describes the history. Beside there is a free parking,...More

We had some time to kill, and decided to stop in. All the wax figures were in a display type box. You couldn't get close and pose for pictures in any of them. You walked through hallways with display of all the presidents and some...More

Thank you so much for your feedback. We are glad you stopped by to check us out! Sadly, since we don't have in-house artists creating wax figures (as is the case with Tussaud/Hollywood, etc) it costs upwards of $50,000 per figure, so we cannot take...More

I am very interested in US history and was delighted to learn some interesting things about former presidents. The audio tour free with admission lets you dig in a little more and not be superficial - but still very interesting. Well done!
