Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
In 1802, Madame Tussaud takes her wax show on the road with her sons to Britain. They settle into a permanent establishment in London and create the 'Separate Room' where there are detailed, gruesome exhibitions of the French Revolution. This was the main attraction of her shop up until her death in 1850. Years go by and her remaining family and their children open up many different exhibitions worldwide. The Washington settlement was the third one opened in the United States in 2007.
