WASHINGTON, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. is celebrating Presidents Day by unveiling a wax figure of Theodore Roosevelt, the 26th president of the United States.

"Complete with his trademark spectacles, President Roosevelt's dapper figure dons a black suit with a long waistcoat and gold pocket watch. His wax likeness will join Presidents George Washington, Richard Nixon and George W. Bush in the attraction's newly added Presidential Gallery, which offers visitors an in-depth look at all 43 previous U.S. Presidents and features biographies of all the first ladies, including Michelle Obama," the museum said in a news release.

The attraction also has wax figures of Presidents Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Dwight D. Eisenhower, John F. Kennedy, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama.

Madame Tussauds Washington D.C. said it will also be giving away teddy bears in a daily drawing for all visitors who complete the attraction's presidential scavenger hunt, beginning Presidents Day and running through Feb. 28.
