Me and my boyfriend were visiting New York City and decided to visit Madame Tussaud's! It was brilliant had some great celebs to look at and take pictures of! They are so surreal, it's quiet scary. They are all brilliant, staff are friendly and helpful! Would definitely recommend visiting Madame Tussaud's on a rainy day xx

This was a unique and fun museum; you walk your way through a series of rooms whose themes match the life of the wax figures. It's incredible how life-like all the figures are. We had fun "posing" with the celebrities! They do have a small food court about half way through the exhibit, but you have to walk your way... More

Had a great time visiting and was amazed at the talent behind these creations. As part of a student tour, we opted for an educational seminar. The guy leading the seminar was very personable, knowledgeable, and fun, but I don't think the seminar enhanced the experience.

This would probably be the most enjoyable for certain ages (teens / 20s perhaps) . Many of the exhibits were totally accessible for photos of various sorts and they were arranged in various themes. Many of the models didn't look much like the "originals" at all. On entry we were led to believe that it extended over 9 floors. It... More

We had a great time taking pictures with the wax models. This was a fun time for our teen boys who only agreed to go because I kept pestering them. Once there, they said, "this is a good ending to our vacation....that was fun." I wished we had gone earlier. We were too tired to see the Marvel exhibit. Plan... More

Overall was ok... I went mainly for marvel exhibit... 4D movie was amazing but we only saw hulk and iron man figures. What happened to Spider-Man and captain America? Since those are his favorites it was a lil disappointing. We also didn't see Carmelo Anthony another one of his faves. Was there a reason we didn't see certain figures we... More

If you can pay for your tickets online. Cheaper & it gets you into place quicker. The guy at the front door noticed I had a walking shoe on & let me used the elevator. Very nice employees.We had fun taking pictures & interacting with the attractions. The 4D shoe was unexpected, we thought we had to pay extra, but... More

I loved it, the employees were great. Miguel Liz attended us with patience and respect. he caught our attention and convinced us to go the very next day, because it was too late to go immediately. the sculptures deer astonishing, it's incredible how realistic it can be. We took so many pictures and selfies, I doubt we will ever forget... More

Just finished going to Madame Tussauds and I dont think Ive ever had so much fun. The doorman miguel liz was the funnest person i have been around. He had my father crying of laughter. The Wax figures look sooo real. And the 4D ride was so much fun. For sure 5 Stars :)

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
