Movie stars, athletes, and musicians appear to come to life at Madame Tussauds New York, located in the heart of the city.

The five-story venue also includes several themed exhibit areas, allowing you to walk through recreations of some of the city's classic moments.

  • I was pleasantly surprised at the good experience we had here. I kind of expected the quality to be like a side show at a fair, but it's professionally done. All the wax figures are pretty lifelike. You can get right up next to them for photos. Many of the famous people are here. You can rush through or take all the time you like.
  • I have been a skeptic for a long time because it looked too touristy, but friends were in town and wanted to go. I was honestly surprised by it. It was cheesy at times, but for the most part it was just good fun. Every figure was set up in a fun way. There were tons of photo opportunities and some interactive things. The layout is nice because you wind your way through with signs showing you where to go so you know that you are not missing anything. Any group of friends could go in with an open mind and have a good time. I would highly recommend getting your tickets online, ahead of time. It is much easier.
  • We had a great time in here. They serve alcohol inside which is great for parents. Takes at least the hour to walk through if you're going at a quick pace. There is a part where children would enjoy it. That is the superhero section. However, apart from that, young kids would probably not get much out of just looking at full size figurines of movie characters and celebrities they would not know. Adults should have a blast. The location of this place is amazing as well. 5 stars
  • This place has lot of wax statues of the famous personalities from films, sports, politics, history etc and they all appear so real. You can touch the statues and take photographs. Is usually very crowded. The statues are organized very well. There is a small food store and gift shop inside the building. You can also get wax replicas of your hands here. There are many other branches in other cities and countries. There is 5D movie screening as well.
  • Great place, lots of fun.loved doing the wax hands, luckily we were there quite early, we were second in line to get our hands done and there was soon a big queue behind us. It was quite a lengthy process and only 1 person working at first them someone else came but she couldn't do double hands which made the wait even longer for most. But our experience was good. The hands were packaged well and survived the flight home!
