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.

This is always a fun stop! I like how they keep it fresh and are constantly updating "who" is in the museum! Yet you can always see the classics too. I also like how there are differences from city to city. Plus you can get right in there and take GREAT pictures with your faves!!

I've been to a few of these now and find they are normally a lot more interactive in the scenes ie there's props available to get in character with the scene and get a great pic. It seems people either can't be trusted or this one doesn't offer it as any potential prop was super glued down! Ie Katniss everdean... More

Lines moved quickly, elevator to top floor and you explore your way down. Wonderful pieces and the interactive Ghostbusters exhibits were excellent. Marvel 4d was awesome.

I have been to Madame Tussauds many times and every time I enjoy it more and more. I am in my mid 20s and it seems to be as much a thrill for me as it is the younger kids. It is such an incredible place and the artists are so talented with their portrayals. I certainly recommend for anyone... More

Great way to pass a few hours. I did not recognise all the people but a few but still amazing to see them. And get your pictures taken with them. I advise going early as it was quite quiet when we went so not to busy. And get new York pass pass free entry and no queuing.

Not worth half the price of admission. Given the plethora of things to do in NYC, give this a miss. The vast majority of the wax figures look rather poor, seems to be all the figures not good enough to be displayed in London.

It is an awesome experience to be in Madame Tussaud, New York, Can see the most wonderful world leaders and celebrities in one roof. But still recommending to add some more world personalities would be amazing.

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.
