“Good day out but really much the same as any other Madame Tussads”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

Im not really into wax work museums but went with my mum because she really wanted to go so maybe I am a little biased but never the less, it was a good day out and the wax works are really brilliantly done. There were so many wax works on show and pretty much all of them were too a very high standard, which made for some great photo opportunites!!
When i went it was very busy which made it a bit difficult to get photos but as this is NYC, im not sure when wouldnt be busy!!
The highlight of the day for me was the 4D cinema show at the end, which had a short movie featuring the Marvel comic book heros. This show was amazing and i would 100% recommend seeing it or whatever 4D show is on.

It was fun to click pictures, moreover because it was not too crowded. Some of the wax statues were perfect e.g. Obama, however some of them were a blunder e.g. Shahrukh Khan.

“a must seen while in NY”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

after visiting the museum in Bangkok & loving it, we couldn't miss another experience & weren't disappointed. the place is not big but packed with flawlessly made wax figures of mostly famous politicians & celebrities (singers, actors...)

the museum tour will take a little over an hour.

important note: i'd recommend to order tickets online for 2 reasons: 1. discount 2. faster line to get inside

the only disadvantage are the prices of the museum's gift shop, especially of the printed pictures, taken by the museum's staff. for example: one foto will cost you about 17$.

“Late visit to Madame Tussaud's was the best time to go.”
Reviewed January 12, 2014

We pre-booked our tickets from a company called Attraction tickets direct, which we used to buy tickets for everything we did in New York, the tickets saved us money and time. We visited at 10.00pm which was a great time to go as there was only us and two other families that we saw, so we were able to take pictures without having other people in then etc.

“Expensive considering...”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Some of the wax figures were spot on, others not so much. There was a good video on the making of a wax figure so you could appreciate the difficulty and high level of artistry. There was a short walk through a scary part that was pretty well done. I was glad it wasn't longer!!!! The 4D experience was fun but wasn't one where you went back to see it again and again before you left the museum.

I know it is in the heart of Times Square and their overhead must be horrendous, but it would be so much easier for families and visitors to see if it were priced a bit lower.
