As our hotel room overlooked the street where Madame tussauds was situated, our son nagged us to take him there.

Son enjoyed the visit but I found if far too crowded.

And as for the Bollywood area, oh my God, wall to wall people. We had to fight our way through just to get to the next display.

Wouldn't visit again.

Once you've been to London's this is very disspointing but glad we stopped by. Whole visit took us about an hour.

I only went because this was included in the NYC pass. I didn't like the fact that people were getting excited about seeing famous people because they are not real. The staff were rude and were even eating while controlling the lifts. The only cool thing is that you can take pictures in the front on an old NYC cab.
So many other things to do in New York.

Not worth it. Too much chaos and it doesn''t feel any different than looking at wax figures on internet. Good for photo album though.

We purchased a New York City Pass (definitely worth the money) so I felt as though I didn't really pay to see Madame Tussauds. Thank goodness because I didn't really feel that it would have been worth the $40 to get in.There were a few people saying exactly what I was thinking, which was that I didn't think the mannequins were that life like. The only mannequin that looked true to life was Jeniffer Aniston. Not bad, but not a 'must see'.
