I won a couple tickets for Madame Tussauds, home of the wax figures. I figured hey, why not check it out?
It was a lot more fun than I expected. Just steps from Ford’s Theatre at 10th & F Sts. N.W., the home of wax now has a display of all 44 presidents. We’re not just talking some dull statues, but presidents in all sorts of poses. Sit next to Lincoln in the Ford’s Theater box. Check out the Oval Office with Obama. Since I’m related to five presidents it was interesting to see lesser-known ones like James Garfield up close.
Of course, there are plenty of entertainers and a few that made me scratch my head. And, one completely fooled me in the gift shop.
So if you want to take a break from history, visit Madame Tussauds. You’ll suddenly find history is fun, too.
