We visited Madame Tussaud's as it was included in the New York Card we had purchased , however even free it wasn't worth the time. The Ghost Busters exhibit was ok but all the interactive stuff was an additional $10-15 per activity. Many of the waxworks where poor and overall just not a good experience, there are so many better... More

Visited this attraction with our New York pass on a rainy Tuesday. What a huge disappointment. We were hard pushed to recognise some of the figures although a handful were really good - Morgan Freeman, Salvador Dali to name two. There were a lot of figures that I think only Americans would know e.g newsreaders. Some others were quite old,... More

In every city that has a Madame Tussaud's I make sure to visit. This was my second visit to Madame Tussaud's in NYC, but the first time seeing the Marvel & Ghostbusters exhibits. I love that since my first time there they have changed the layout and some of the figures. Most memorable the P!nk statue where it actually has... More

Compared to other places like this it is quite unimaginative. Took the family, waited for a while, quit, went back because the youngsters wanted to see it, waited in line again and when we eventually got in everyone was underwhelmed. Shame but there it is.

Madame Tussaud's New York has something to offer everyone. Wax figures of celebrities young and old, presidents of today and yesteryear, athletes, artists, writers, even a ghost or two, and an extreme wait in line for many side attractions.. Madame Tussaud's has tried to up their game with a Ghostbusters VR experience. While the experience itself is short and mediocre,... More

I went to the museum at 9:30 am, the morning of my last day in New York. First, it started off rocky, my husband  paid for 2 adult  tickets  and the lady gave him 1 adult ticket and 1 baby ticket which is ridiculous. He had to go back up to the counter and get his other adult  ticket that... More

We got a discounted ticket when we bought Empire State tickets so thought we'd give it a visit - and I was a couple of hours out of the cold! It was my first visit to a Madame Tussauds and I wasn't disappointed- I cannot believe how life like these figures are. I found myself getting up really close and... 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.
