So COOL! Such a fun experience.

This is such a great idea. The way they have it set up to the accuracy of the wax figures. When you first go in you have to take an elevator up to start the journey through the... read more

This is such a great idea. The way they have it set up to the accuracy of the wax figures. When you first go in you have to take an elevator up to start the journey through the museum. When you get dropped off at the top, you walk right into a "party" that makes you feel like you are... More

At first my teens were a bit skeptical; however, evening activities are limited if you are not taking in a show. We had a free evening and museums close by 6 pm so we headed here to spend some time. It was a fun time & not very crowded. The staff was friendly and the picture areas were nicely staged.

We bought tickets on Groupon (good after 6pm only) and it was basically a 50% saving :) We had an 1:30 to visit since we had a broadway show starting at 8pm and we had just enough time. The last time we visited was in 2009 and it was nice to see the old classics but also a bunch of... More

This is a wax museum just 1/2 block from Times Square. I have only been through a few max museums in the past and haven't been very impressed. However, this place does it right! Start at the top floor (5) and work your way down. Every personality is very realistic and positioned in a setting that is very fitting. Many... More

Its such a wonderful place to snap a selfie with all the present and past stars from across the World! If you are a selfie/photo addict, you can spend easily around 2-3 hours.. Do not miss the 4D movie Right next to Times Square! Cons: Wish the kids' tickets weren't so expensive. Tip: Always check for Groupon/ Online deals/ passes... More

I enjoyed strolling round and taking pictures. I liked all the different themed rooms. The wax hand station was amazing, i cant believe we got ours home in 1 piece.

Perhaps my only gripe is this attraction is really expensive. For two people -- a dad and his teenage son -- this cost $84, and then there are additional charges if you want their pictures, popcorn, etc. Nonetheless, if you want lifelike wax figures or famous people, this is the go-to place. And everyone is presented in very entertaining ways.... More

It's a cool thing to do while in the city with friends. Wish it wasn't so expensive. I would suggest putting up hand sanitation stations threw out the building.

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.
