Madame Tussauds New York reviews
This is a must visit in Times Square. It’s indeed the best wax museum in the world, the figures are so lifelike it’s daunting at times! more »
The exhibits were amazing. It was easy to enjoy my visit and relax throughout the entire museum especially during this time of the pandemic. Seeing the cleaning crew 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.
