Easter Egg Roll, you’re in luck: Madame Tussauds is hosting its inaugural Easter egg hunt and “eggs-ploration” tour on April 7, in the Presidents Gallery by Madame Tussauds.

“We realize that it’s very hard to get tickets for the White House Easter egg roll,” says Dan Rogoski, general manager of The Presidents Gallery. “A fun family outing early on a Saturday morning, with a nice tie-in with the Easter egg hunt ... we think it’s going to be fun.”

Kids should come with baskets in hand at 8 a.m. to visit with the commanders-in-chief and search for over 1,000 eggs that will be scattered through the exhibit, filled with small trinkets and special prizes. Keep an eye out for the select Golden Eggs, though - the finders could walk away with a family V.I.P. package, an Oval Office photo shoot, or a personalized wax hand souvenir.

Be sure to hop down to the “Oval Office” for a visit with live bunnies provided by the Be With Me Playseum that will be present for extra-special photo opportunities. Free face painting will be available for those who donate to the children’s charity Merlin’s Magic Wand. The two-hour event is free for kids ages 12 and under, and is $10 for attendees13 and older and tickets can be purchased in person. Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is located at 1001 F Street NW.
