It’s worth noting the premise of this post is based purely on anecdotal evidence; that evidence is that we have not seen very many people visiting Madame Tussauds (1025 F St NW) since they opened on October 5, 2007. We noticed recently that they have knocked their entry price down quite a bit and it is now only $10 for an adult admission (down from $18). Advertised as a “Special Winter Promotion,” we’re wondering if this is a sign of trouble? Our online searching shows that neither the NY or Vegas Madame Tussauds locations are offering such a deal.
We should stress we don’t want this business to fail, so we hope that their sidewalk advertising of President-elect Obama sends more customers their way. And of course our original premise could be wrong, although we walk by Madame Tussauds several times a day, perhaps we’re just missing the crowds.
