Located in the Penn Quarter, near the Spy Museum and Newseum, this version of Madame Tussaud’s has a definite Washington feel. Kids can sit behind the desk in a perfect replica of The Oval Office and stand next to Martin Luther King Jr. as he recites his “I Have a Dream” speech. Teens can also take (and then text to friends) photos of themselves with numerous wax figures including the likes of Hillary Clinton, JFK, Babe Ruth, and the Jonas Brothers. Open every day of the year. Adult tickets (ages 12 and up) are $19 per person; ages 4 to 12 are $13. Children age 3 and under admitted free, and the museum is stroller-friendly.
