A gathering spot for all the past American presidents appears to be shutting its doors in the nation's capital.

Madame Tussauds, the famed wax museum based in London, is attempting to lease out its downtown D.C. retail space, according to the Washington Business Journal.

The wax figure-filled attraction opened to much fanfare in 2007, but had closed to visitors amid the coronavirus pandemic last year.

The tourist hot spot had featured a $2 million "Presidents Gallery," an exhibit honoring all of the past commanders in chief, from George Washington to former President TrumpDonald TrumpPence: Supreme Court has chance to right 'historic wrong' with abortion ruling Prosecutor says during trial that actor Jussie Smollett staged 'fake hate crime' Overnight Defense & National Security — US, Iran return to negotiating table MORE. "Spend time getting to know the world's greatest leaders," the museum had said on a promotional site for the presidents' display. "All of those influential figures you've learned about are finally all in one place (and not in a boring old textbook.)"

Last summer, the Madame Tussauds in New York added a face covering to its Trump figure in an effort to remind visitors of the city's mask mandate.
