(AP) Marilyn Monroe has a unique place in history and now 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.


In Washington, a mural serves as a tribute to Monroe in the Woodley Park neighborhood.
