"We were pleasently surprised"

We were pleasently surprised, we had free entry as part of our bus tour ticket, and were unsure what to expect, yes the majority of the works are the American presidents, but what else would you expect in Washington, what we found really interesting was the little bits of information placed next to each statue. Not being an American, you only ever really hear about a certain handful, but to be able to see, and read about what they did, and when, really helped to bring them all to life.

This is a small museum with limited display. It is only good to go if you have nothing to do in Washington DC.

A worthwhile stop on our vacation, and our first Madam Toussauds. Dayja made the picture portion a blast. Based on our experience, we will definitely check out other locations in the franchise.

We got tour tickets along with our Big Bus hop on and off tour. Not worth it otherwise. It was nice to see the presidents up close but that was about it.
