The wax figures here are very well done! Our friends thought we were at some event with the real people when we posted our pictures! We had fun posing for pictures with our favorite characters. The replica of the Oval Office is also a do not miss item!

Mainly a vey political wax museum, there are a few sports/movies/tv celebrities right at the end. If it wasn’t for the free admission ticket I am not sure I would recommend visiting it.

So when we arrived and got out the Uber we were greeted with screaming Paparazzi and a red carpet and there in all his Glory was Michael Jackson. I am not sure if they greet everyone this way as when we came out it was not like that but for our arrival we were blown away. All the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We were surprised how we could get so close to all the statues we got some great photos with all the stars and purchased some that were professional taken. We just wished there were even more stars but was really impressed and was a fun thing to do.

My wife and I took our grandchildren to see Madame Tussauds over the summer. They had a great time. We also participated in the scavenger hunt. Kids really enjoyed that.
