I have to say rather impressed with NY's Madame Tussaud's Museum - have been to other wax museums but this one, was the best. So many characters to choose from! From history to politics to singers and actors, all very cleverly displayed and explained. The was also a gift shop and food and drinks sold on different floors. The tour starts with you having your photo taken, posing caught inside King Kong's hand, as if captured by it and then have the option to buy this photo during the tour. The only negative i have to say (and thats why i did not give it full marks) is that the exhibition starts on the 9th floor (and then make your way down) which you can only get to in a lift - unfortunately, i cannot use them so we have to wait around until one of the ushers, could take us up walking through the fire escape, which were loads of stairs to climb and not exactly a scenic route! Otherwise brilliant.

We are so glad you enjoyed your visit! We do have stairs to every level and we are happy you were able to get in touch with an usher. Please make sure to check us out on the web as we are always adding new figures!

If you get caught in NYC on a rainy day, head straight for this comical experience in times square that is bound to leave you smiling. Leave your dignity at the door and enjoy comical poses up close with the stars. The NYpass offer free entrance and the wax figures are remarkably real. My favorite moments included a chance to flirt with Clinton and taking on Kim kardashian face to face.

Spend a few hours getting up close and personal with some of your favourite celebrity's. you can have some fun striking a pose alongside them. Most of them are quite life like. Thought there would have been a lot more to offer than there was so a little disappointed in that regard. Need only do this once.
Lockers available to leave your stuff in and I would strongly recommend using them if you are loaded up with bags.
Look around in New York discount books as you are able to use vouchers to get discounts.

The dolls are really great, some dolls are so real they almost hypnotised me, the 4d film is unbelievable and should not be missed. The scream action is also something you won't forget
