We had a fun time just moving around and looking at the wax figures. It was a nice break from walking around looking at monuments the kids had fun. Presidents hall was fun and there is a lot of interaction with the figures they even...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.

Instructive because they have all of the American Presidents. They already have others statues that it is worth the ride, it is funny to take a lot of pics and, especially for kids.

Having never been to a Madame Tussaud's, decided to visit the hometown exhibit. Tickets were $22 per adult. We went here before taking a bus tour and found that Hop On Hop Off tours , which has an office next door that sells tickets, provides...More

Good fun, but dominated by all the American Presidents and we only knew about ten of them. JFK and Elton John were not even similar to the real life, but others where. Ok, but not great I am afraid.

They didn't have as many wax figures as I thought they would have. For the price we paid for the tickets I thought there would be a little more. I wasn't too impressed with this place at all.

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.
