Washington: A new gallery opening in
Washington will show wax figures of all 44 US Presidents
together in the nation`s capital for the first time.

Madame Tussauds wax museum opens a USD 2 million
revamped attraction today. It hopes to increase its appeal to
tourists and school groups by pushing presidents over pop
stars.

Tussauds created 28 new wax presidents, many based on
paintings or historical accounts when photos weren`t
available.

There`s a stately John Adams seated in the "Founding
Father`s" gallery, as well as the shortest president, James
Madison who stood 5 feet 4 inches tall.

Each commander in chief has a historical setting.
Former President George W Bush is in a new September 11
remembrance gallery, while President Barack Obama is in a
replica of the Oval Office.
