5 things to know about Madame Tussauds in an election year

This 2022 election year is drawing attention to a local attraction, celebrating our freedom on choice.

  1. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Orlando presses you right up against some of the planets’ biggest celebrities. The stars are recreated to appear as lifelike as humanly possible — right down to their dimensions and skin texture.

  2. At the Orlando location, Pitbull is one of the firsts you’ll encounter as you begin your selfie-journey through the walk-through attraction. But keep on going, and you’ll run into political and historical figures.

  3. Marketing Manager Jade Sparks recently touched up the figures in this section, starting with the 16th president of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Steps away, former president Donald Trump observes former president Barack Obama. “It feels like you’re there in that moment with them,” Sparks said as she straightened Trump’s pin. Some of the wax figures have been here since Day 1. Others are in rotation.

  4. It doesn’t matter how you rally or lean politically. Every day, museum artists are lint-rolling, hair-brushing, makeup-applying, and primping whomever you like the most, all to ensure a perfect “moment” or selfie.

  5. Current President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are not in Orlando. Instead, they’re up at the attraction in New York. In Orlando, Trump was installed in 2017, and Obama in 2015. Madame Tussauds Orlando is located at the base of The Wheel at ICON Park.
