Madame Tussauds in D.C. is going green. And they're hoping to draw a few people into the wax figure-filled attraction in the process.
Starting Monday, the museum will melt $5 off their regular admission ($20 for adults, $15 for children ages 3-12) just for showing your Metro SmarTrip card.
The museum says it's urging area residents to reduce their carbon footprints by bicycling, taking mass transit or walking instead of driving a car. Which is pretty easy for them to do since they're a hop and a skip away from Metro Center or Gallery Place/Chinatown.
But maybe not so much for those of us who have to take two buses and two different Metro lines just to get to work. (Ahem.)
The show-me-your-SmarTrip card* promotion runs through Sunday, Sept. 27.
*Yeah, we made that name up. But the promotion's still real.
