Have you ever wanted to amaze your friends and family with the perfect selfie with Beyoncé? Or better yet, top off your trip to DC with a parting photo of you and Obama?

Since 2008, Madame Tussauds has been the only place where visitors can see, touch, and take photos with the world’s favorite celebrities, historical figures, and all 44 US Presidents under one roof. The incredibly lifelike wax casts almost seem too good to be fake are housed in six themed rooms, including Glamour, Sports, and Civil Rights. Totaling over 100 figures, the collection leads visitors through noteworthy events in US history to the contemporary celebrities of our generation. Better yet, the interactive attraction has foregone the museum-style ropes and poles, allowing visitors to get up close and personal with some of the world’s most influential figures.

In addition to visiting with these recognizable faces, guests can explore the story of Madame Tussaud herself, and learn about how the wax figures are made. The museum takes their “hands-on experience” to a whole new level, allowing guests to make a souvenir wax cast of their own hand!
