“My First Madame Tussauds and Mind Blown !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

This is my second time visiting NYC, but first time hearing of and visiting a Madame Tussauds museum. Originally, my grandparents and I were offered free tickets to visit it my our tour guide. At first, I didn't know better, so I asked for tickets for the Believe it or Not Museum instead. Only later, when our bus made the first stop, did I realize it was a was museum filled with statues of celebrities! The next day, I pleaded with my mom and aunt to let me visit MT, and luckily, it wasn't long before they agreed. Being a huge Timberlake fan, I was temporarily shocked my the JT statued that was stationed out front. To my disappointment (and a little relief!), it was - surprise, surprise - the first wax statue. The tickets in were not cheap, but not too expensive either ($35). But I'm telling you, it is WORTH IT. The place is pretty big, the first hall full of actors like Bruce Willis (he seems to be everywhere these days!), Samuel L. Jackson, Jennifer Aniston, and much more. There were many of these separate theme "halls" (if that had specific names for each, I was not aware), one even dedicated to - I think it was - horror films! Some of those horrifying depictions like Dracula are so realistic that can downright chill you! And until you make that decision to test your wit and get real close-up it, it will! All through the galleries, you find more and more statues of people you most definitely would give to meet in real life. There was even a replica of the oval office in a Leaders of the World hall, but I think you have to pay extra to get a picture with President Obama. Overall though, I'm going to say it's quite a must in Manhattan, and I'm definitely returning on my next visit to NYC!

These wax figures are so real, some are downright creepy! We had a great time posing with them & taking photos. If you've never been, you really are missing something both fun & amazing!

“Very realistic models”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Some of the models are so realistic that can creep you out! Great photo opportunity with celebrities and historical figures. Not a "must" in NYC though; I only recommend it if you have some spare time.
