The wax models are outdated. Hilary Clinton's wax model looks about 30 year younger than she is now. You will not get your moneys worth in this place. Everything is about 8 years behind. They even have twilight as a main attraction there. A very budget experience. The 4D movie was also a waste of money. A cartoon they have... More

It's definitely a fun worthwhile novelty to go if you've never been to a Madame Tussauds before, however, we've seen Madame Tussauds in other cities so it was all a little repetitive.

It was one of the best places in NY. If you're traveling to the city you can't miss Madame Tussaud's. It's really fun!

I read people take almost 2 hours here, but I spent 1 and it was more than enough. It was funny to take pictures with the wax figures, since the scenarios help to create the environment and you feel like you are part of it. I loved to take a picture on ET's bike, for example! And kids love it!... More

We bought our tickets the night before and were so glad that we did. When we got to Madame Tussauds, there was a line out the door waiting to purchase tickets. We just walked right in and started our adventure. It was really a lot of fun. Most of the figures are so life like you think they should start... More

Let me start by saying that I have been before and did enjoy it previously. This time it seemed like the wax figures were very sparse. My daughter was very excited to see One Direction and they were not there. In speaking to an agent it said that they were shipped to England. Many of the characters on the website... More

Almost endless number of lifelike statues, some very good, and some mediocre. I thought that it was tedious. Some fun, but I did not think it was worth the price. You could take pictures with most of the statues, but at some they had to take the picture, which cost $30. The items in the gift shop were also expensive.

Had a blast, family really enjoyed the wax figures, especially the superheroes. The 4D show was great. Bummer the Ghostbusters exhibit had an hour wait. They should do some kind of timed tickets so you don't have to stand in line so long

We took the kids here and it was very crowded. We had purchased tickets online for the Ghost Busters 3D experience. What they don,t tell you online is that there is a very long wait and no priority to buying online and scheduling a time. We ended up waiting an hour for the Ghost Busters experience which really messed up... 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.
