Save your money and go to the Crime Museum or International Spy Museum instead. Both are within a block of Madame Tussauds.

So....if your idea of a fun day out is to go to a place with a bunch of random celebrity mock-ups and just take pictures...this is your place! I mean, I had fun while it lasted, but I can't see myself going again (I mean, they rotate the wax figures that they have and all, but...really come on).

This is the second Madame Tussauds I've been to (the other being Las Vegas) and the third my family as been to (Vegas and NY) and this was the most disappointing. It was small and not worth the entrance money. It started out well enough and we had fun taking pictures with the presidents,  posing withe some of the celebrities, but then it abruptly ended. Expecting to go around the corner and find some more spiffy figures, we found the gift shop. I was the first one through to the door and my reaction was "that was it?" and as my family trickled through, they all said the same thing. My guess is that the people working in the gift shop hear that all day long. It took us maybe 30 minutes to go through it all, a...
