It was a wet and cold day and because we had the pass we decided to go and besides I wanted a photo with Obama* There are several floors with each having a particular theme: historical, political, celebrities, sporting stars. We mucked* around and had our photo taken with those figures we admired (or lusted after?) such as Mandela, George Clooney, Obama. I particularly liked the section devoted to the 1920s.Please note that there are sections of the complex that you will need to pay extra if using the New York Pass such as comic book heroes.
I lvoed Madame Tussards. It is a incredible place and having been to the orginal musuem in London, I was looking forward to visiting the one in New York and although I am not a Native American so some of the celebrities were unknown to me, I had a awesome time. I met Barack Obama, George Clooney among others, a great day!!!!!!
Have been to several Madame Tussaud's around the world and this one was the worst. Most of the figures are terribly done. If you've been to any other MT, I'd skip this one for sure.
Madame Tussauds is open 365 days a year at 10.00am.
Sunday through Thursday they open at 10.00am and sell the last ticket at 8pm
Friday and Saturday the open at 10.00am and sell the last ticket at 10pm
During the summer season, Madame Tussauds offers extended hours.
Admission is $29 for adults, $23 for children 4-12, $26 for seniors (60+), under 4 is free.
Madame Tussauds is a Wax Museum in NYC that has wax statues of famous people (if you didn't know that already). I went there with my mother and cousin and they both loved it. I though it was a bit boring. I took some funny pictures with statues and that’s about it. You can also learn a little by reading their stories but most people just come and take a photo with the statue and move on to the next one. A bit boring in my eyes.
My favorite part was showing a picture with me and Brat Pitt and actually fooling people

I had to beg my boyfriend to go as he didn't want to pay 35$ but it was well worth it. He couldn't stop talking about it after!!!! We took pictures with all the famous stars and then he tried to pass them off as real at work when we got back to Montreal. What a joker!!! Some people believed him. One pic he was grabbing J-Lo's ass. YA sure keep dreaming!!!!
You probably don't need too much explanation for this. I definitely recommend a visit, it has a really large and ever-growing collection. See pix in my Travelogue.
This is one of the most amazing museums i have ever seen. It is a wonderful experience and definitely you must see.
They look so real... Just unbelievable!
And there you can take a really close picture of Brad Pitt!!
