Not one of my favourites but you defiantly can appreciate the hard work that goes into making the sculptures.

I visited with my family and we had a great time. The wax figures are very well done and we took a lot of pictures. Would love to go again!

I've been to Madame Tussaud's NYC twice and most of the attractions remained the same. My absolute favorite memory of visiting the first time was making a funny (and rather horrid) video of me pretending to be Superman. I brought my boyfriend here and it is expensive, but can be a fun time when it's not as crowded. It's hard... More

Bigger than the one in LA. Took my sister and we had a blast taking pictures with the "stars". The staff that met us outside were hilarious. Who wouldn't want to go into a place that have Morgan Freeman outside? Make sure you look for a coupon before you go though.

I have been to madame tussaud in Amsterdam and it is no comparison! Nyc one is too small with very little interesting characters (although it is renewed in every couple of months). It really is not worth the time since there is so much to do in nyc!

I have been to the London and LA Madame Tussauds as well as this one, I thought this was great. Mainly the same people but some I had not seen before. Pretty cool back drops. Nothing compares to London but this one I really enjoyed also. It was also included in the New York city pass, so great value!

This is a great museum expecially for the star-struck tourists. We had a NY pass, so we skipped the line and got the tickets really fast. The sculptures and the sets are very fun, no huge crowds so you don't have to wait in line to take a picture with a sculpture. The only dissapointment was the fact that there... More

I´ve been to LA museum and since I was in NY I decided to give it a shot. It´s a nice place and very organized but I think that LA is better, maybe because it was my first of it´s kind. They have a 4D theater for Marvel that was too QUICK but fun. The best pieces for me? Bruce... More
