Get in to Madame Tussauds for a Song

By Anne Kenderdine

At Madame Tussauds, feel free to kiss, hug, touch and otherwise have your way with wax celebrities. (Brendan Hoffman/Getty Images)

For me, Madame Tussauds, with its nearly $20 price tag, has been the one museum best left to the tourists -- even though I'd love to spend a Saturday afternoon straightening the skinny ties of a waxen Jonas Brothers and comparing my assets to J-Lo's.

And I know I'm not the only one who's curious.

Next Wednesday through Saturday (Oct. 8-11), thrifty Washingtonians will have a chance to visit Madame Tussauds for just $1 as the wax museum celebrates the first anniversary of its D.C. location. (Doesn't it seem like it's been there far longer?)

The catch: They want you to sing "Happy Birthday" at the box office. They'll still let you in if you don't, but you will be considered a poor sport.
