If you are that lucky kid (or adult) who can win any argument with, “Well, I share my birthday with President [insert name here], so there!” then this is your lucky weekend.
To celebrate the first anniversary of its President’s Gallery, Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in Washington is granting free admission all President’s Day weekend to anyone who shares a birthday with one of the commanders-in-chief.
“All of our guests now can go on an interactive journey through American history and meet all the presidents — take pictures with them, put their arm around them,” says Dan Rogoski, general manager of the Presidents Gallery by Madame Tussauds.
The leaders are placed in characteristic vignettes of their era and are surrounded by other historical figures, including Benjamin Franklin, Harriet Tubman and The Post’s own Bob Woodard — “the 1970s version” — placed with Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. “He’s in there on that journey through history,” Rogoski said.
The special opportunity for celebrating with your presidential kindred spirit (Ulysses S. Grant and I are off by one day), begins Friday and continues through Monday, Feb. 20, just two days shy of our first president’s 280th birthday.
Guests should bring proof of I.D. upon arrival. The Museum is at 1001 F St. NW, and will be open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday-Monday. For more information, visit madametussauds.com/washington.
