    Madame Tussauds will open a presidential gallery this fall in the Wax Museum at 1001 F St. Once it opens, Tussauds DC will be the only place in the world where you can see and interact with all 44 U.S. presidents, according to museum officials.

    On Tuesday, the museum unveiled the wax figures of nine new presidents: John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison, James Buchanan, Andrew Johnson, James Garfield, Chester Alan Arthur, Grover Cleveland and Gerald Ford.
     
    Mayor Adrian Fenty joined first-graders from Grover Cleveland Elementary School for the unveiling. Local Developer Douglas Jemal also was present. He said the gallery will be a “perfect addition to the Washington, D.C., museum landscape.”
     
    Later the mayor was invited to make a cast of his handprint, which will be used for a plaque in the gallery.
