We have visited madame tussauds in every city we have visited and always enjoy ourselves. The wax works are truly something to behold with their likeness uncanny. This madame tussauds was smaller than I had expected due to the large presidential presence but nevertheless it was enjoyable. We got the Big Bus hop on hop off pass with madame tussauds... More

I've been to numerous small wax museums so I expected great things from madame toussauds, which I always thought was the premier wax museums of the world. Wow....what a disappointment! If you want to simply walk through empty cavernous rooms with a few wax figures standing randomly about ...then his is the museum for you. Otherwise done waste your money.... More

I don't know if I'm the one not into wax figures but I think it doesn't worth the price, there are the presidents of the USA and some artists, if you like this kind of places go if not you can save that money

We had a great time. We have an 11 year old and a 7 year old. They had a blast. We all had fun, even my 70 year old mom. There was something for all ages to enjoy. The cherry on top was Erika helping kids with their wax hand mementos. It's obvious that she enjoys her job and my... More

Got the opportunity to visit Madame Tussauds during the President's Tour at the museum..Awesome! The amount of detail crafted into these statues is unreal. They are true to life in size and detail and do everything except breathe. You'd be amazed at who has a likeness at this locations! Great! Traveler tip: If you are purchasing the hop-on-hop-off big bus... More

We decided to go here because it was included in the price of our two day Big Bus tours. There were six adults and five kids and we all loved it. It starts with all the presidents and the kids were pretty bored but then are pop stars and movie stars and everyone perked right up. They even had a... More

I expected more from the museum,there was just one floor in the basement for the display .Only the U.S Presidents and a few movie stars to name a few were the main display .Parking in that location was a disaster, so we ended up looking for a lot.However it was a fun trip!

It was neat to see all the presidents but it was a 30 minute walk through. For us 22$ was to much for such a short time.
