I visited Madame Tussauds partly to get out of the rain and partly because it was one of the inclusive attractions available to you with a New York pass. It was an hour well spent, with some of the mannequins looking particularly lifelike (and some less so).

I thoroughly enjoyed Madame Tussauds although some of the exhibits did not bare a good likeness to the stars. But it was fun and enjoyable. We also went into the 4D Superheroes Marvel Movie which was much better and a great experience.

Madame Tussaud's is fun to see once. If you have been to the original one in London, I suggest not going twice. There is some overlap and it's basically wax statues of celebrities of public figures. It's in the nucleus of Times Square so you can't miss it. Let me put it this way, It would not be my top... More

I personally did not feel so enthusiastic about going to Madame Tussauds because I have been here before and have visited in Las Vegas, Hollywood, San Francisco, Washington DC. Maybe I have been to too many of them ;-) We still visited as my daughter wanted to see some of the new additions. I enjoyed it as I was looking... More

Had not planned on going here but it was included in our New York Pass and it was a rainy day so we figured what the hell. Was pleasantly surprised but would not have paid the entrance price had it not been included in our pass. Was a fun way to kill a rainy afternoon and although not all the... More

Visited on a Saturday evening. Was busy and crowded. Wasn't all that exciting really. Kind of "cheesey". Certainly not a "must see" on you NYC visit.

I had never been to a Madame Tussaud's before coming to New York. My friend and I pre-booked the tickets and went early evening, so we didn't have to que at all. It's very large, and we had a lot of fun going around, having our picture taken and taking pictures. There's a large selection of wax works, so it's... More
