Cool place to see. New figures added since my visit in 2014. Our New York Pass didn't include the 4D exhibit...that was a bummer.

very crowded as the street sellers pack everyone in at 2 for 1 offers -which makes pre planners feel disgruntled and you queue tooooo long to access. they need to rethink the wonder of the past - they are missing it!

Having visited in London several years ago I had forgotten just how amazing these waxworks could be! The layout of the exhibitions in New York are fantastic and, as usual the service staff were super friendly and enthusiastic about their jobs. Great work guys!

This display is a lot of fun and a must see for any traveller to New York. With movie stars and other "A" list celebrities to see up close and be photographed with. Best to see with a group. Earns some impressive bragging rights when you bring out your holiday snaps of the famous people you met.

I visited this place as part of the free attractions available with NY Pass. It is limited comparing to the one in London. It has almost the same size as the one at Hollywood-LA. Would I go back again; not really. Tip: for those who are using NY Pass; it is the same place where you book for (The Ride).

We paid $45US for our photos to be accessed online when we arrived home after our holiday. The code nos were not recognised & after emailing were told by Customer Service that 'we process thousands of photos and have lost yours......' That was the only response we received with absolutely no reference to a refund of our money!!

This place is definitely a really fun place for everyone. All the wax figures are amazing they look so real. Definitely a place to come with a selfie stick LOL. Had a great time with friends. They have a 4D movie at the end that was absolutely amazing. The only disappointment was we bought tickets that included The kids to... More

We had purchased the New York City Pass so we got free admission. I wouldn't want to pay the standard entrance fee as I don't think it would be worth it. We visited in the evening which was good as there wasn't many people about. It was a fun way to spend an hour getting some silly pics with celebs... More

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.
