What a fun place to visit and pretend you're meeting all these Hollywood stars!! We enjoyed everything this place has to offer, from the pictures with all the wax figures to the movie they show! Kids and adults had a fun time!

Is a great place. Must see with very famous icons. But still the London place is much better than the NY version

Great Place when you are in NYC. The wax figures look extremely real is very creepy. When me and my mother saw the i love Lucy figure it looked so freaky and like she was there

Since our kids had been to NY before and had done a lot of the "must do" activities - we decided to go to Madam Tussaud's. Keep in mind we have 9 year olds. To be honest . . . I think my husband and I enjoyed it more than they did. The reason I say this is because I... More

This was a perfect way to pass a rainy morning with a 4 and 7 year old. They loved posing with the figures for photos....and enjoyed seeing some they knew. A lot of the figures were from old movies that they knew nothing about. All figures were very well done and very lifelike. We enjoyed the scenes that you were... More

We have passed by Madame Tussaud's and always said, "We should make it a point to go sometime!" Well we finally took the plunge and it was a terrific! The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. We asked about any discounts available and were told there was a AAA discount of 15%. A search through my wallet revealed I left... More

Ok, this was amazing. Everything about this museum was worth the money spent. The wax figures seemed to be endless, and COMPLETELY accurate in physical appearance. Some of them even fooled us.. We thought that maybe the real person was there posing as a wax figure (that would have been even cooler, haha). We took so many photos, and spent... More

The quality of the figures is really good. Try to book in advance because the ticket line is quite long. If you are in NY just for a couple of days you might skip this attraction for better ones. However, it is ideal for rainy days.

Something different to do on a cold winter day. Some of the figures weren't that good but most were right on the mark. Grate chance for the kids to take selfies with the rich and famous. Expensive, so look for a coupon or deal, we had a groupon. We spent about three hours in total and everyone had a good... More

It was ok, it killed about an hour or so, in fairness some figures were VERY good, I almost expected one to move, but some were Awful. If you have a bit of time to kill or its raining go, but there's so much more to see, I personally wouldn't recommend. I think its a bit pricey too, like everything... More
