The last time I visited a Madame tussauds was in NYC and felt like this site in DC didn't have as many wax figures. The president's were interesting though. I think it's a little pricey for what you see. There were a few interactive things like quizzes and DJ simulation. We went through the whole museum twice in about 1 hr 1/2.

We love to go to Madame Tussauds in any city we visit so Washington was a go to for us. Of all the ones we've been to this probably was the biggest let down. It had some political figures but not some we expected. It also had some historical figures but again, not some we expected. It had all the standard figures that other MT's have but considering it was DC we expected more of other figures. And it was a smallish museum.
