Staff were rude at the counter where get the enter pass. The super heros section only had five figures and Spiderman at the front which looked plastic. The... More

Walked past Madame Tussaud's at 8pm at night after a meal and decided to pop in as this was covered on our New York pass. Excellent that this place is open until 10pm but got to say if we hadn't had this on the pass would not have bothered as quite pricey. This is well laid out, go to the... More

The experience was dull and short. We had the NY-pass, so we did not pay for the visit, luckily. I guess it's only funny for those who like to take pictures with "celebrities".

Good fun, great characters, really enjoyed this one - would recommend, especially if you have New York pass as it was included, right next door the the blingiest McDonald's!

Visited Madame Tussaud's 2 yrs ago. (a little late review) but enjoyed it and would return to see who is currently hanging out. I think Tupac was there at that time, along with Leonardo DiCaprio, Eli Manning, Matt Lauer and Al Roker (who were shorter then I expected) oh and Sean "P-Diddy" Combs was hanging around and Paris Hilton. Saw... More

Just off Broadway so very convenient location. As you would expect from Tussauds' the wax figures are truly realistic and lifelike. I liked the layout and the different themes that run throughout the rooms. You are able to take photos with all of the models and when we visited it was not very busy, so easy to get a photo... More

Lots of great figures and definitely worth checking out if you have some spare time while in NYC. Close to all the main shops and near broadway musicals also. A great place for everyone to check out and the Avengers 4D experience was by far my favourite part of the Madam Tussauds tour.

It is difficult to review Madame Tussaud's - you either really like the prospect of taking photo with celebrities' wax statues, or you are just indifferent. I am more of the latter category - I visited Madame Tussaud's mainly because I had the New York Pass and I was passing by Times Square, so why not? The actual ticket price... More

Lived that you can get up close to all the models. This is another item that you get for free with a New York pass however if you want to watch the 4d movie that's extra but well worth the $5. Would visit again.
