The trip to New York would be incomplete without a visit to Madame Tussauds. Take a picture next to Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Bruce Willis.

I have visited various Madame Tussauds around the world while traveling with my kids... and I think by far, this is the best one in terms of its content and setup - it beats the one in Vegas and in London - those are the only two that I can remember in detail. If you are going to visit a... More

This place was so cool to visit! They had every famous celebrity there they look so real! No kidding they look real! We had so much fun taking pictures with all of the different wax people and just examining realism that was captured with each one. They were set up with great scenes and in a great flow and by...

We did this as a fill in activity whilst killing time before going to the airport. We struggled to stay in for more that an hour as there are not as many exhibits as you would have expected

It's ok and you can actually have fun in there, but after being to the London one, this one is just "ok", and I wouldn't go back. It's nice if it's the 1st time in NYC tho.

Very enjoyable. I do suggest getting the program if you wish to know exactly which models there are and how many there are.

We found a lot of the waxworks unrealistic and looking very tired. Some were so bad we couldn't tell who they were. There are not many waxworks compared to the London one. We found it a little boring but the best part was the 4D Marvel film.

This museum is so much fun. It's great to see your favorite movie and TV actors in wax. Some are so life like you're amazed. Others have a strong resemblance. A nice exhibit all around.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
