Each month I try to find a educational but fun outing for my mentee. This month I decided to take her to Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Washington, DC. "Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is an exciting new attraction bringing historical figures and events to life through wax figures that visitors can touch, see and hear." For $21.50 you get to take a tour of this amazing museum and see life size figures of some of the most famous people in history.
My little sis loved every moment in the museum. A history lover at heart she was drawn to figures such as Marie Antoinette, J. Edgar Hoover, Duke Ellington and Abraham Lincoln. My amazement was more geared towards President Barak Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, the Kennedy's, Denzel Washington and Will Smith.
I encourage everyone to take a trip to Madame Tussauds wax museum. It was a really great outing and it was amazing to see and learn about how these life like figures are created. The process takes about 3 months for each statue and body measurements, pigment details, make up and facial feature are matched to the actual celebrity to a tee. Oprah, Beyonce, The Kennedy's, Madonna, George Bush, and Larry King are just a few of the many figures housed in the museum. As you can see photos are allowed.
So take a trip out to DC and go see it for yourself!
