Fodor's Review

A branch of the famous London-based waxworks franchise focuses on U.S. presidential history. You can see and pose for pictures (some for a small fee) with uncanny likenesses of the Founding Fathers or any of the presidents, including Barack Obama and his wife, or sit inside the Oval Office, painstakingly re-created in wax. The Civil Rights room features Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. There are cultural icons, sports figures, and a behind-the-scenes exhibit where experts demonstrate wax sculpting. The Glamour Room is populated with waxen re-creations of George Clooney, Beyonce, Angelina Jolie, and Brad Pitt, among others. Purchase tickets online for the best daily discount.
