Visit All 44 U.S Presidents At Madame Tussauds’ New Gallery!
This morning, Madame Tussauds Washington D.C, announced the arrival of their brand new $2 million-plus U.S. Presidents Gallery, which will open on Thursday, Feburary 17, 2011 – just in time for Presidents Day! The new gallery will house wax figures of all 44 U.S. presidents, where people can see and interact with all of our past leaders.
As you can imagine, this has been a tremendous undertaking for the artists in charge of recreating these figures, each taking approximately three to four months to complete and an incredible amount of research.
If you are heading to Washington, D.C., in the new year with your family, Madame Tussauds is a great pick for an exciting and educational experience.
The U.S. Presidents Gallery will serve as a rich educational resource and include a curriculum focused on the history of the U.S. presidents. The new curriculum will fully complement the attraction’s existing and free comprehensive Educational Curriculum Guide, which was developed in accordance with the U.S. Department of National Social Studies Standards and National Council for the Social Civil Rights Movement Studies Standards. The guide was designed to empower educators with the tools they need to deliver exciting lessons in areas such as history, political science, social studies and media – before and after visiting the attraction.
