Fodor's Review

Sit in the Oval Office with President Obama, sing along with Lady Gaga, pose with your favorite heartthrob—be it Justin Bieber or Justin Timberlake, or enjoy a royal chat with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kate. Much of the fun here comes from the photo opportunities—you're encouraged to pose with and touch the nearly 200 realistic replicas of the famous, the infamous, and the downright super. The new Marvel 4D Experience includes wax likenesses of

heroes like The Hulk, Captain America, Ironman, and Thor, as well as a short animated movie shown on a 360-degree screen that surrounds the viewer. Other interactive options at the museum include a karaoke café, a celebrity walk down the red carpet, and a haunted town populated with both wax figures and real people. Closing hours can vary during peak seasons so call ahead to verify.
