It was so realistic! I was a little freaked out by how realistic it was. Great spot to take pictures and a great way to kill time if you need to.

I admit. I was only here because my kids were dying to go. Wasn't looking forward to it... ready to check off the box and move on to the next real NYC experience. However, this was really a fun experience. Not only do the newer figures look incredibly real, there is a diverse selection to view. Loved the Project Runway section and the interactivity with the designs and screens. Great experience!

"Scary Real-like Figures"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 15, 2018 NEW
When you first enter, you get a small glimpse of what to expect with just a handful of figures. After you take the elevator you're greeted by many celebrities and unique figures that you would never expect to look like in real life. The trip will even bring out nostalgic memories, and not many museums can do that. It's also right next to other museums and famous brand name stores, so it's located in a very convenient place.
