Washington - Marilyn Monroe will be remembered in wax at the Madame Tussauds museum in Washington.

The museum unveiled its newest wax figure on 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.
