“Great fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Ordered tix online and got a discount. Some figures were incredible and some were not but it was still fun. 4-D marvel at the end was awesome. Bringing my kids next time. Well worth it.

“Thoroughly enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

At first I thought it would be another run-of-the-mill place to see, however, it turned out to be one of the best places to visit in NYC. I thoroughly enjoyed being a ham around the statues!

“Worth a visit at least once”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I went to Madame Tussands for NYE's, but the whole museum was open to us. If you've never been to a Madame Tussauds, you really should go. That being said, if you've been to one, you've already "been there, seen that." (I have been to the one in LA and many of the figurines were the same.)

It's complete touristy fun. Bring your camera, block out an afternoon, and expect to take tons of photos with celebrities like Beyonce, Brad Pitt, NSYNC, Michael Jackson. The New York one does have a floor that is tourist New York-take a photo with the Rockettes, in Central Park, on the stock exchange, etc.

Some of the figurines look way more life-like than others. Julia Roberts, Eli Manning-not so much. Still, overall the wax figurines are eerily real.

It's definitely worth a visit at least once.

“Super fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

This tourist attraction was super fun for the family. Took some fun photos of the 'stars' and had a bit of a laugh. Recommend but not essential.
