Washington DC: Madame Tussauds
I am not sure if I am doing a Madame Tussauds world tour but for the last 3 consecutive years during my travels, I’ve been going to Madame Tussauds. The first time was in Singapore last 2015, it was well planned and I was so happy to see my favorite celebrities up close even if it was just wax figures. The second time was in Hong Kong last 2016, we only went there for the One Direction wax figure, but to our disappointment it was already shipped back to UK on the day of our visit. Then last year, 2017 in Washington DC, we didn’t plan it but our Big Bus tour ticket includes Madame Tussauds, so here I am again for the third time!
There are over a hundred wax figures in Madame Tussauds in Washington DC, but the photos below are the photos of the figures I am interested in. If you are curious about the process of how these wax figure were made, I explained it on my Singapore Madame Tussauds post, just click the highlighted link above.

MEDIA AND ENTERTAINMENT
It’s 2018 now and I am not sure what Madame Tussaud would I go to next, intentional or non-intentional. All I can say is, I should get a Loyalty award for being such a fan.
This is my last blog for Washington DC! It was a good 2 and a half day of exploration and I learned a lot about American history. DC is definitely a good place to start for those who haven’t been to the US.
