Traveling with my daughter and her friend, this was a highlight. A variety of lifelike figures, fun photo ops. Giant line to get in, but once inside you weren't crowded by others.

We always keep this as an option for a rainy day when in Manhattan and have a great time every time we go. Always something new and it's fun to point out the figures that look nothing like the celebrity haha

"FUN AFTERNOON"

On all my travels I'd never been to a Madame Tussauds, so decided to rectify that by visiting the one in NYC. At the entrance to the museum I was absolutely conned by a woman taking a selfie. Turns out it was a wax woman! Some of the wax figures were so real and it was fun taking pics with them. Others were not believable replicas. A bit small, but still fun.

"Hated it!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed December 10, 2017 NEW
Very expensive and some figures were not there just their plaque. Some of the figures were dated and others didn't really look like the person they were suppose to be. I hated that you had to pay for the 4D cinema and the Ghostbuster tour. We used our City Pass to do this attraction and feel we wasted the ticket which could have gone on something more interesting! On the plus side we didn't have to queue with the City Pass! Very underwhelming. Won't be returning.

"Expensive and not worth it"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed December 09, 2017 NEW
Doesn't have all main movie stars. Very outdated. Loads of sections are additional prices so the basic tour is poor. The whole thing felt like an attempt to get more money particularly from parents as they had a section for avengers which was an additional cost. Not worth it
