1001 F Street NW, (Corner of 10th & F Streets),Washington D.C., 20004.

Have you ever wanted to kiss George W. Bush? Give Hillary Clinton a big ole hug? Or simply see if you were taller than George Washington? Well now there's a place in Washington, DC where you can do it all - Madame Tussauds. The premier wax attraction will give visitors an interactive, full-sensory experience; they will be able to touch, see and hear major historical events and celebrities in a way unlike any other Washington, DC attraction.

Located within walking distance of the National Mall and the White House, the attraction will be housed in the historic Woodies building with the entrance on the corner of 10th and F Streets. Madame Tussauds will be divided into sections, and each section will feature an array of exhibits, interactive experiences and wax figures.

It is an interactive "must do" attraction that provides guests with unique opportunities to create memories with some of the country's most historic icons. The 27,000 square foot space is the seventh Madame Tussauds attraction globally, joining the hugely successful Merlin Entertainments Group operations in London, Amsterdam, New York, Las Vegas, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is open 365 days a year at 10 a.m.


For more than 200 years, Madame Tussauds has been entertaining and educating millions of people with its signature wax figures.

In 1761, Madame Tussaud was born Marie Grosholtz in Strasbourg, France. By age six, Marie moved to Paris with her mother, who worked as a housekeeper for Dr. Philippe Curtius, a doctor and wax modeler, and became his prodigy. In 1770, Dr. Curtius opened a
museum featuring life-size wax figures that immediately became popular among Parisians and visiting royalty.

Madame Tussauds wax figures are uniquely created from private sittings with the celebrity subject and based on hundreds of precise measurements and photographs, impeccable craftsmanship and dedication to artistic perfection.

Even with today's technology, the painstaking process of creating wax figures is relatively unchanged since Madame Tussaud produced her first Figure of French writer, Voltaire, more than 200 years ago. Because their work reflects not only the images, but also the personalities of celebrities, a tremendous amount of artistic talent is required at each and every development phase.

It takes up to six months to complete one figure. Beginning with a sitting, sculptors spend several hours with their subject, taking more than 250 precise measurements of the body, hands and face with calipers and cloth tape measures.

The sculptor models a clay figure of the subject, then clay is molded in plaster. From the mold, the body is cast in fiberglass for durability and the head is cast in wax.

Celebrities often donate their own clothes and accessories or have their own tailor or preferred designer work with the Madame Tussauds wardrobe manager to create exact copies of their favorite outfits.

When showcasing its priceless works, Madame Tussauds cares for its wax figures with daily cleanings, jewelry polishing, hair washing and make-up retouching. This rigorous attention to detail upholds the high standards that have made Madame Tussauds the world leader in wax figures and exhibition.
