Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. was a wax museum located in Washington D.C., the capital city of the United States. The attraction opened in October 2007 and became the 12th Madame Tussauds venue worldwide, and featured wax sculptures of famous figures from politics, culture, sports, music and television. In comparison to other Madame Tussauds venues, the venue features more waxworks of political figures, with sculptures of all 45 U.S. presidents displayed.

The wax museum a block away from Ford's Theatre.

The museum closed after March 17, 2020, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The closure was announced as temporary, but the museum never reopened. In July 2021, the museum operator was seeking to sublease the entire space of the former museum to outside parties.[1]
