  • It had a nice entrance with Brad Pitt and you could say it was quite good but you will realize that all the statues represent all characters and they are not up dated. So, if your daughter is looking....  more »

  • Has a great time!!! The staff were very friendly. I took a lot a great pictures. Buy your tickets online for a better deal. The marvel 4D movie was nice as was the zombie virtual ride. Both were pretty exciting. Great day trip for the whole family. Definitely recommend!!!
  • Very fun afternoon. The figures were amazing to see and very life-like. We ordered our tickets in advance on their website and got a much better deal than at the door. We added the zombie ride and the wax hand to take home and would recommend those activities too.
  • Good work, but don't think they require that much of hype. Overpriced tickets. Few figures, missing the lively look, for which this place is famous. Some renovation work is required. Pale at some places. If not attended may lose popularity. Except at the ticket counters, the staff at other places, not of much help. Very prominent location... Next to famous Times square.
  • Almost three weeks ago, I visited this place and I was totally in love with this place. The staff that is working here is so nice. We needed discount and there was one nice lady she gave us coupons and waived off $ 10 from the ticket. I would recommend you to visit this place as you are going to be in love with this place and finely made wax statues.
  • This museum far surpasses all of your expectations. Not only are all the statues incredibly life like, but they are all instantly recognizable and relevant figures. I went into the museum expecting It to be creepy or disturbing, but it wasn’t in the slightest. The level of care taken with these figures is astounding, and Mme Tussauds is a must see attraction.
