Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.

Phone Number: +1 202-942-7300
Get up close and personal with your favourite celebrity wax figures at Madame Tussauds Washington DC. The attraction's history is a rich and fascinating one, with roots dating back to the Paris of 1770. It was there that Madame Tussaud learned to model wax likenesses under the tutelage of her mentor, Dr. Philippe Curtius. At 17 years of age, she became the art tutor to King Louis XVI's sister at the Palace of Versailles and then, during the French Revolution, was hastily forced to prove her allegiance to the feudalistic nobles by making death masks of executed aristocrats. Madame Tussaud came to Britain in the early 19th century alongside a travelling exhibition of revolutionary relics and images of public heroes and rogues.
