Americans Go Free at Madame Tussauds

Quick. What’s the most over priced tourist attraction in London. For our money, it’s Madame Tussauds. At £22.50/$32.52 to see wax representations of Posh and Becks, we reckon there are about a thousand better things to do in this fabulous city with your time and money. But tomorrow, any American in London with “appropriate documentation” can get in to Madame Tussauds for free to see the new wax representation of our 44th president. And at that price, it’s a bargain.

As Madame Tussauds describes the experience:

“Standing in a recreation of the legendary Oval Office, President Obama is in a typical informal and relaxed pose, smiling with arms casually folded, dressed in a tailored suit.

Stepping right into the heart of the White House you can sit behind the iconic Resolute desk used by Presidents since 1880 or pace the ‘American Eagle’ monikered carpet and experience what it’s like to be a World Leader.”

Tomorrow, before the TV coverage commences, we’re grabbing our passport (not our wallet) and heading for Madame Tussauds. Right on, Washington!
