Marilyn Monroe has a unique place in history, and now she has a new place in wax.
The Madame Tussaud's museum in Washington is unveiling Monroe as its newest wax figure Wednesday. It will be displayed initially at Washington's O Street Museum in The Mansion on O Street.
An exhibit about the late Hollywood star will also include a pin-up calendar and photographs, as well as a shampoo advertisement and lunchbox featuring Monroe.
Monroe died 51 years ago, after films that included "Some Light it Hot,'' "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'' and "How to Marry a Millionaire.'' But for younger generations, Monroe remains an icon of style.
In Washington, a mural serves as a tribute to Monroe in the Woodley Park neighborhood.
