Movie stars, athletes, and musicians appear to come to life at Madame Tussauds New York, located in the heart of the city. This wax museum features over 200 life-like figures, including pop culture icons Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, and Princess Diana. The five-story venue also includes several themed exhibit areas, allowing you to walk through recreations of some of the city's classic moments. You can ring the bell at the stock exchange, take the wheel of a New York City cab, or join a meeting of the United Nations. Be sure to pre-book your tickets for the museum's 4-D theater experience; it's a short film loaded with special effects and featuring superheroes Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man.

  • Museum dedicated to artists and celebrities, but it's not as fun as the Los Angeles but well worth a visit! Apart from the characters of the world of the film and the music, will find also to characters illustrious and relevant of the last and it news as well as Presidents of several countries. The entry is included in the new york pass card.

  • Waxworks varied with different personalities. Worth to buy tickets over the Internet. Good for a rainy day in new YORK.

  • Very interesting places. Our first time there. We had a lot of fun. We took pictures with the celebrities. The staff was very coutious. Thank you for a great time and hospitality 
  • Their new Ghostbuster walk through experience is great. If you stand near the portrait of Gertrude you get very lightly sprayed with faux slime (a.k.a. green colored water). Their virtual reality Dimension is also fun. Only 3 or 4 people allowed in the VR room, so try to go with your own group. Would definitely recommend paying for the whole experience.
  • Loved this place. Couldn't get over how real they look. They even worked on a special background/decor for each wax figure, to add to the realness of it. Quick tip, try and get there once they open, as the lines can get busier as the day goes on.
  • It's a wax museum. You see one, you've seen them all. BUT, I highly recommend TheVOID's Ghostbusters VR experience. 15min fully immersive VR experience to blast ghosts with up to 4 people. Without spoiling much, haptic suit, wind, smells, vibrations, etc. as you are virtually lead through a physical space where you can feel the walls and other elements. Having done a number of Oculus and Vive demos and experiences, this one is no question the best VR experience currently open to the public (attended in July 2016). Until their full VRcade opens in Utah, this is the only location currently open to the public. Just for this, go to Madame Tussauds in NYC ($50 with admission to museum and experience. I wish they would offer cheaper admission to just the VR, not willing to spend $50 again).
  • It is a really cool visit. Super fun to "meet" some celebrities. They are placed in a nice setting that matches the celebrity. We had a new York pass which made the access easy and painless. We visited in November which wasn't a busy time so we didn't have any problems with lines or waiting times in front of celebrities.
  • It's really awesome be among celebrities ! Madame Tussaud in New York will meet you with Jennifer Aniston , Lopez,Mohamed Ali and even with a president of USA -Barak Obama and him wife . Just imagine that for 1 hour you will meet everybody ,who was just in a TV before for you:) ( and what that everybody are wax figure?🙈😅😊)
