“beneath Mt Rushmore's watchful gaze”

Beneath the watchful gaze of Mount Rushmore in the beautiful Black Hills sits the National Presidential Wax Museum. Visitors gain insight into our nation’s democracy through life-size, life-like wax figures depicting our country’s most shaping experiences in dramatically historical settings. Join the framers of the American constitution as they gather to sign the Declaration of Independence, experience the beginning of the Cold War with President Franklin Roosevelt at Yalta. Observe the famous wax sculpture of President John F. Kennedy and his son John Jr. come to life, and witness the unveiling of the dramatic visit to “Ground Zero” by President George W. Bush after 9/11. Recapture the spirit of patriotism as you witness the evolution of American democracy represented by all 44 presidents.

Very few of the presidents looked legit. We like Madam Tussaud's better. That said, it was a fun and educational stop and refuge from the heat!

Did not really look like the presidents. I guess if you have visited madam tasaudds or other big wax museum you tend to compare.
