From the time you enter and all throughout the museum, you are entertained with the celebrity figures. Every employee you encounter is courteous and helpful. If you are a fan of movies, sports, or music Madam Tussaud is a must see.

You go and you don't want it to end. I've always wanted to go to a Madame Tussauds but have never had the chance. I'm sure there are plenty of people for everyone. Being a brit, there were quite a few American sports stars and hosts i didn't know but still so glad I went! Got to finally 'meet' Robin... More

type of visit ???!! Obviously couples ... You can't be in your right mind and go to see famous people made from wax. I was with my wife; she suggested it; it's our honeymoon; you get the idea by now. If you aren't forced to go, you won't be missing alot. However, it was good opportunity to grab some pics.

Our trip was ok. The wax figures were not as good as the ones I have seen in London and not that big we were done within an hour but that was ok as we did it as a last minute thing before leaving for the airport. We used our New York passes.

I appreciate that these things are popular otherwise they would not still be successful. All I can say is this was not for me. If you like celebrities and taking selfies then there are plenty of opportunities. My wife enjoyed it more than me and am sure would rate it higher. I found the whole experience to be fairly short.... More

After visiting the London one a couple of years ago decided to visit New York as we had a couple of hours spare on our last day. The first room was ok and we thought this will be good, Johnny Depp was very good. It just went downhill from leaving the first room really and too much emphasis on ghostbusters... More

Went to the museum using vouchers from the hop on hop off bus tour. Went on a Friday morning so it was very quite - it's lobbed at the weekend. Good attraction and good way to spend the day. Older children will love it. Don't know if I would have paid full price for it.

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.
