You won’t want to miss a visit to see more than 100 notable public figures, both living and dead, inside the ultra-cool Dreamland Wax Museum in downtown Boston. This museum sets itself apart from Madame Tussauds and other wax museums by allowing patrons to interact with the figures rather than simply viewing them behind a velvet rope, pane of glass, or curtain.
Here, you can touch the figures and take selfies with them. The museum includes wax versions of Beyonce, Oprah, Elvis, and other huge figures in the entertainment industry. But, at least half of the museum is dedicated to academic figures, one section depicting all 45 presidents.
