Came here at my daughter's request, and wasn't sure what to expect. But it was good fun, and quite entertaining. We were lucky that at 10am it was quiet, I imagine it's a pain when busy. The 4D show was an added bonus. Worth the money

...however we were greeted on arrival with a lengthy queue even with NY Pass 'VIP' line (which staff ignored and instead called forward general admission queue first). Once inside many of the waxworks were outdated and to a poor quality. I appreciate the American theme to their waxworks however the attention to detail is simply lacking and started to feel... More

A great collection of figures, some more realistic looking than others, but fun to see nonetheless. I bought a combo ticket with the Circle Line Boat Tour and it was very reasonably priced.

Madame Tussauds at New York is right in the middle of Manhattan,and hence is a MUST visit,apart from the fact that it has some very good exhibits,that have been well categorised to enable one to spend time in the area/floor of ones choice. The floor with President & Mrs Obama's figures in the Oval Office is very nice and a... More

Went here because it was on the New York card and thoroughly enjoyed it. Low brow but fun to take your picture with the stars and American presidents. I guess every Madam Tussards is slightly different depending on country so you could try them all and still enjoy yourself.

A lot of fun and a lot of stars to see. These wax statues are amazingly crafted! The staff were very kind at this exhibit. We pre-bought tickets prior to our trip.

I wasn't sure what to expect here - thought it would feel kind of weird, personally - but we bought the NYC Pass for a family trip to NY and thought it would be fun to take the kids. Having never been to a wax museum I have to say I actually had fun getting a close up look at... More

I didn't think I was much for a Wax Museum, but one of our travelers wanted to check out Madame Tussauds. I gotta say..never judge a book by it's cover. It was really awesome! Most of the figures were right on and there were a lot to see. Definitley a must while in NYC.

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.
