    We didn't go there because there is not a lot of information from the reception (opening hours, prices). It was included in the pass, we came to Ms. tussaud or we had been pus that disappointed so we thought why not. We were not disappointed, we learn many things, to look around, we have fun. In the end we saw not the testimony passed.

    Still has appeal, despite being a former attraction, based on a TV show that featured oddities and bizarre.

    Very interesting place to visit. Had very many interesting artifacts and topics that were not normally known. Enjoyed the visit.

    This place was awesome. I was such a fan of the show when I was a kid and it was fun to see everything. The museum felt like it went on for forever!! Totally worth it.

    The place brings in busloads of kids who then run riot. The staff doesn't interfere or ask the chaperones to control the kids. Go late in afternoon or later, or stay away.

    Good place but horrible staff. The management should really learn how to be courteous to guests. The worst possible place to interact in New York. Avoid it if possible.

    Best place for curious and discredited people. It's worth visiting. I recommend.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
