The D.C. attraction pays homage to some of the most influential and important political figures in U.S. history from Presidents to activists and assassins to First Ladies.

New! In celebration of Black History Month, The Presidents Gallery (one of the featured exhibits) unveiled a new wax likeness of the renowned African-American abolitionist, humanitarian and spy for the Union during the U.S. Civil War, Harriet Tubman. After escaping from slavery, into which she was born, she reportedly freed more than 300 slaves via the elaborate network of safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.

The US Presidents Gallery makes Madame Tussauds DC the only place in the world where people can meet and interact with all 45 U.S. presidents. History buffs, students and the general public alike enjoy a truly unique and enriching educational experience at the Gallery.
