Madame Tussauds can be summed up as pricey, but a surprisingly enjoyable stop. Who would have thought that taking photos next to statues would be so much fun? We had a great time going through Madame Tussauds. The first part included a bunch of actors, including some of our favorites (Patrick Stewart, etc.). There were fun photo ops with, for... More

the museum was a great place to visit on a rainy day. The staff was very concerned about everyone being able to enjoy themselves.

We went as it was raining all day and had a couple of ours to spare before a show. There was a small queue outside that took 15 min. We then got inside and there was a further queue to buy tickets, this took 15 min also as there was only two people on the desk. Got the tickets then... More

If this is a first ever visit to Madame Tussauds then maybe it would be more enjoyable, however having visited the one in London I was slightly disappointed, the wax figures are not as good as they are in London and I think the layout could be better. If it's part of your New York pass and you have time,... More

We went here on our New York Pass, thinking it would be as good or even better than the one in London, Oh were we disappointed. The posters around town show the Avengers, they were not there (its only a film and not the statues, additional cost on to of normal entry), while standing out side the lift waiting it... More

Having visited Madam Tussauds in London and Los Angeles, I must say that this one at NYC was a big disappointment. It's way too expensive for what it offers. There are few wax statues comparing to the other museums and they don't look real at all! Besides, the walls are full of pictures of celebrities and this makes you think... More

We visited the museum on March 2014. It was an unplanned activity however my sons really liked it so much. They took pictures with Obama, Brad Bit, Leonardo DiCaprio, Robin Williams, etc. They enjoyed a lot the accuracy of statues and sometimes they don't believe they are just wax. For that the museum is a must seeing while you are... More
