Wax President Chester Alan Arthur.

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum

Madame Tussauds in Washington, DC has expanded its wax dummy collection to include every official American President. The "interactive" spin at MT allows politically-passionate visitors to strike poses either admiring or insulting modern Commanders-in-Chief.

The new expansion also enables visitors to get a good look at even the most obscure Presidents, and to realize that our Chief Executives are an odd-looking bunch. James Buchanan has the crazy hair of a mad scientist. Chester A. Arthur apparently never shaved his immense sideburns. William Henry Harrison looks like he just wants to run away and hide (he died after only 30 days as President). And after you've made your way through all 14 Presidential galleries, you can hang out with Buzz Aldrin in his moon suit.

The best part of the attraction is that Britney's wax self is immortalized on a stripper pole!

Madame Tussaud.

Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum

Madame Tussauds in Washington DC is your fairly typical interactive wax museum. Stand out scenarios include sitting in Ford's theater with Lincoln for the assassination.

Also of note is the black history room which includes: Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Rosa Parks and...Yoko Ono?
