Marilyn Monroe to join Madame Tussauds collection

October 30, 2013

WASHINGTON (AP) — Marilyn Monroe will be remembered in wax at the Madame Tussauds museum in Washington.

The museum is unveiling 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 but remains a pop culture phenomenon. She was well known for films that included “Some Like it Hot,” ″Gentlemen Prefer Blondes” and “How to Marry a Millionaire.” But for younger generations, Monroe remains an icon of style.
