A Little History and a Little Camp Never Hurt Anyone
Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum offers the right balance of campiness and seriousness for a Washington, DC museum. Wandering among the wax figures of famous people, you can actually learn a little about history, as you experience it.
You can cross the Potomac with General George Washington.
You can sit at the back of the bus with Rosa Parks.
And you can dance with Beyonce...
Flirt with Larry King
Hang with the President and First Lady
Plus, even the bathrooms are fun. Em felt right at home.
The rule at Madame Tussauds is no touching the hair and face. Everything else is welcomed and they even supply props. The museum is located in downtown DC just around the corner from the Metro Center station. You can save 15% if you pre-order your tickets online. Expect to spend at least an hour, maybe more if there's a crowd because you'll have to wait your turn to pose with the figures.
