Amazing- so much more to do than the UK ones. Only a few faces we didn't recognise due to them being on American shows.

This is the first wax museum I've seen in 40 years. It was very good. It was good to see what stars and other notable people look like, all the vital statistics, and how they compared to tourists looking at them. The 4D movie was the best 4D I have seen.

I have been here a few times but they are always changing it up to reflect current pop culture. They have a few different exhibits so it's not just pop culture. I always enjoy my visits here !

This is a great place for those people who love taking selfies and also for those who are simply in love with celebrities. If you can't meet your fav celebrity in real life then this is for sure the next best alternative. However, in my case, I am not really a celebrity fanatic. They just people. Pics are great, but...

This is a neat place to see wax figures of your favorite stars and historic people. It is very unorganized as to the flow of things though. No boundaries, kids run wild and are all over the statues. Can't enjoy and take it in very well.

My mom, daughter, and I visited Madame Tussauds while on vacation. We had the BEST time while there. The wax figures were very life-like. My daughter could have stayed there all day long. We loved how the museum was divided into themes...... It was very neat. If you don't purchase the New York Pass you will want to purchase your... More

Had a great experience at Madame Tussaud's. There are a lot of figures to see and take pictures with. I only put up pics that were already on the website because it's better if you see them in person. The only downfall and disappointment was no Thor or Captain America. Apparently, they were loaned out for the movies coming out.... More

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.
