No line, walked right in. The displays are nicely done. Lots of selfie opportunities. People who take the photos that you would pay for were really good about also taking photos with your own camera

Very nice selection of personalities and celebrities. Some were eerily lifelike and some were... not real looking. Overall, we were pleased with the trip. Friendly employees.

I think this was the best Madame Tussauds we have been to.The figures seem much more realistic .It was very interesting to see all the presidents of America including Trump.They have a replica oval office where you can sit and take photos.This was really cool.

This was included in the cost of the city bus tour. The bus takes you there, you see the wax figures and then get on another bus when you are done. I visited WA DC in October when it wasn't very busy. I'm not sure if there... More
