My husband, his brothers and I wanted to visit this museum during our NYC vacation. The museum is pricey 30 bucks plus taxes, but the variety is poor for that price. There was a lot of famous people missing such as Elvis. If you want to take a pic with Obama they charge you more money. We did have fun,... More

This was my first Madame Tussand visit. Lots of wax works, very realistic. Lots of photo opportunities. Great place, not made to rush. Opportunity to purchase merchandise.

I had a blast just walking around for hours looking at all the wax figures. It was nice because you could go at your own pace and really get up close and personal!

Me and the wife went here as part of our 5 days in New York honeymoon. We purchased a new York pass which gave us a discount as long as you squeeze a lot in over the time you purchased (we got 2 days). I wasn't expecting much to be honest but really enjoyed my self so did the wife.... More

Sure, it is a tourist trap in a way and quite cheesy but where else can you pose with your favorite celebrity or athletic star? World leaders or even our president? Kids love the camera action they get by clicking and tweeting their pic with a famous current pop star. Figures are amazingly life-like. You almost say excuse me if... More

This was my first Madame Tussauds experience, and I had a blast. The wax celebrities were so well done, and very well maintained. You can really get up close and personal with these celebrities. I was almost expecting velvet ropes around every figure, but was so happy to find out there is no such thing. So much fun!

Our family thoroughly enjoyed this entire experience here. It was pretty cool. Especially movie-buff kinda people. Only problem (other than being crowded, but where in NY is it not crowded?!) was it was very very warm! And we were there on a 68 degree Spring day. Other than that, we had a good time.

The figures are hauntingly real and there are many interactive displays allowing the kids to let their imaginations run wild. The best part of the trip was the 4-D Marvel Show at the end. Expect to spend a few bucks so look out for coupons or buy ahead.

We had never been to a Madame Tussauds but had always fancied it and decided to go as it was included on our New York pass which also got us priority queueing entry. I was looking forward to it but was not expecting it to be as good as it actually was. The waxworks, with the exception of a few,... More

I loved Madame Tussaud's when I was younger but it's been a long time since I've been to one so I wasn't sure if I would be disappointed visiting now but it was a lot of fun. A good mix of contemporary celebrities and more 'serious' historical figures plus lots of great photo opportunities. I will definitely start visiting in... More
