If you have been to one before I wouldn't bother going again. Just same old same old. However there was a lot of them missing that were advertised. This place is constantly trying to get more money off you the further you go in.

Please you must visit this museum but most definitely in a group, it is simply beautiful. The skilled art and the fun you can have with your friends is just too much to pass up. Don't forget your camera...I visited with my sisters and the three of us made it an event. The wax sculptures are designed to look so... More

This attraction was fun to stroll through but not really worth the cost. We went early in the morning and didn't need to wait in line. There weren't many other tourists at that time so we had fun taking pictures without needing to rush. When we reached the end, we were a little disappointed there wasn't more. There's so much...

Well worth a visit. You go up in a lift and then work your way back down through many different scenes, music, film, famous people, New York attractions.

It was a little expensive 36.00 for adult . It is better to order on line ahead of time , just to have pictures with famous people and to see how tall they are

If you're visiting NYC, or if you live in the city or the boroughs, Tussauds is a must see! The wax figures are so lifelike, it's almost as if they were alive. And, there are so many figures and tableaus to see- sports, history, music, politics, you name it, Tussauds has it covered. A fascinating and fun day. You'll love... More

Get the New York City pass and go to this attraction in addition to the guided city tours. Well worth the package price.

Well I have heard a lot about Madame Tussaud-Wax museums, and finally planned for the same. I was stunned by the ticket cost of $36 (and $29 for children above 4yrs, oh are you kidding me??) with no guidance on which floor has what figures. The book with pictures costed $5 :-O. The entrance with King Kong is very good... More

We visited while spending four days in New York. Loved every floor. Working from top to bottom is an excellent idea. We took many pictures - some of the figures are eerily lifelike so photos look amazing.

My husband and I spent the weekend in Manhattan and did this attraction. We live in NY so we got an awesome deal on line. I advise anyone coming here to buy tickets online because then you won't have to stand in line to buy tickets. The process to get to the first attractions took a while but it was... More
