Fine. If all that still isn't enough for you, on the morning of Jan. 14, you can pick a president — any president — to take home with you, permanently.
The upside, though, is that the contents of the museum will be going up for auction on Jan. 14. They include “life-sized wax figures” of all the presidents, according to the website for the Pa. OnSite Auction Company, which is handling this operation. The auction will also have figurines of the First Ladies that, I'm sad to report, are not life-sized, because of the patriarchy, probably.
I took a quick spin through the auction company's website, and there are some real gems in this sale. If you're thinking about bidding later this month, here are a few solid options:
Grog tankard half-empty: Okay, so his musical wasn't eponymous. Grog tankard half-full: This founding father actually made it to the Big Show.
William Henry Harrison
He was only president for a month — but he can rule your living room for years to come.
Martin Van Buren
Those mutton chops can be yours.
The eyes. They've seen some things.
The 38th president borrowed your dad's prom tux!
In short, this is a very cool thing. Good luck on your sale, Hall of Presidents and First Ladies Museum! If you don't move Abraham Lincoln, I might be interested.
