Overall this attraction was decent, but I expected a bit more.. there's no Elvis Presley, no Slash, hell why not do an Axl Rose. So its a bit scaled down, but overall fair. I thought it was a bit pricey.. maybe it was because of the Ghost busters attraction. Now I must point out that Ghost Busters is a recycle... More

We went on february 2016, and bought a package from their web page that included access to the museum, access to the Avengers attraction, quick meal (POP, soda, chips, other things to choose from) and the possibility to have your own wax hand made to take home. My kids were 6 and 10. I didn´t really know how was the... More

Not roped off like other places, you could really get up,close and personal with the waxworks. How awesome it was to see the detail and have photos taken with these artworks. Just off Times Square, it's well worth a visit.

Bought online the ultimate experience - not worth it. Well, first of all I am super dissappointed in the fact that there are not that many exhibits as I thought there will be. The staff is not that friendly, also not helpful enough. The 4D event was already started and got me in. Didnt know after I went in and... More

I love Madame Tussaud's and have been to the one in London many times. We went to this one while in NYC and had free access using our New York pass. I'm so glad we did as it was certainly not worth paying for. We arrived at 8pm and queued for half an hour to get in (that's the fast... More

Several floors of basically US characters. Quite small scale compared to London. Long queues to get in and not very efficient ticketing purchase. Leave it for a rainy day. Not very air conditioned either. Ghost busters exhibit quite good. Reasonable gift shop and small cafe. Some staff very attentive and amusing.

This was the first stop on our trip to New York as we collected our citypasses here so decided to go while we were there. The wax works are incredible and there is a huge display from film stars and movie characters to sports stars, presidents and famous figures. We paid a bit extra to see the 4d Marvel superheroes...

This is great for rainy days but it only takes a couple of hours to do. Great photo opportunity. Enjoyed the time we spent there and had fun taking pics. Worth a visit if you get chance

Highly recommend Madame Tussaud's- really great wax works, very life like, interesting for young and old. The 4d cinema experience is a must. Was pleasantly surprised by our visit here. Great fun for all the family.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
