Bring out your cameras and strike a pose – George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Jimmy Carter, and the whole gang are ready to meet you! Even honest Abraham Lincoln can’t lie, there is no better place that brings U.S. history to life for all ages. Rub elbows with historical leaders including Benjamin Franklin, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, and Michelle Obama. Those are just a few! The details in all 56 life-size wax figures will blow you away – from their perfectly still positions of course.
