Get Close to The Stars at Madame Tussauds NY



So you may know that mommy and I recently visited New York City and I'm still sharing my adventures. It was my first time visiting a city where mommy has lived most of her life and also meeting family and friends. However I also got to visit some amazing spots while visiting and one of them was the Madame Tussauds NY Wax Museum. Oh how fun and while you may think that the Wax Museum is only for adults, no kids can get in on the action too. There was so much to see and touch, yes you can touch and I even got to enjoy some photo ops. After all when will I ever get to walk the red carpet and meet these stars up close and personal besides at Madame Tussauds? Well maybe one I day I can but for now this way is just as good. So where is Madame Tussauds New York? Well they are located right in the heart of Times Square on 234 West 42nd Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Times Square, the one place that most tourists visit whenever they visit New York City and where the ball drops on New Years.


The day that mommy and I decided to visit Madame Tussauds New York we also met up with one of mommy's blogger friend who lives in the city. Shirley and her daughter Gabby who blogs at New Mommy Bliss. Mommy got to hang out with her big friend and I got to hang out with my little one and what a blast we had. It was a very cold day in New York but it was nice and warm inside Madame Tussaud. I got to see blasts from the past and also current stars. It was all amazing!





From the outside Madame Tussauds looks pretty small but as they say, looks can be deceiving. It is 5 floors of fun and you get to see over 200 life like wax figures. The great thing about this is that I got to touch every single one of them. Mommy even got to take some shots with some of her favorite celebs as well. This is a museum quite unlike any other and a "museum" that kids would enjoy. You know that we just HAVE TO touch everything that we come in contact with. We even got to learn the history of Madame Tussauds and how wax figures are created. For example did you know that it takes approximately 800 hours to sculpt a figure? Also that they take over 250 measurements and 180 photos are taken of a celebrity during a 2hr sitting? That was just some of the tidbit that I learned while walking around.







We got to meet great musicians of the past, hip-hop legends and a few of our current music stars. While I don't know much about music besides Old McDonald, mommy sure knew a lot of them. Madame Tussauds NY is quite a learning experience because you also get to know a bit of your history.







Musicians and movie stars aren't the only people highlighted in Madame Tussauds NY. There are also sport figures. I got to be on the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon Show and even got to see Kelly from the Kelly and Michael Show. As if that wasn't enough, I got to hang out at Central Park and go to the top of the Statue of Liberty and hang out with astronauts.



I got to meet World Leaders and influential figures of the past including Mahatma Gandhi, The Dalai Lama and even a Pope. As if that wasn't enough. I even got to sit at the desk in the White House, while being looked on by the current President of the United States, Mr & Mrs Obama.






I think however my favorite experience was the Marvel Super Heroes 4D interactive film experience. It was like I was right there in the action. I even felt the water being sprayed in my face. It was an amazing 15 minutes of non-stop action and a must see if you ever decide to visit. I even got to meet my Avengers superheroes and saw the Incredible Hulk who is the largest wax figure in the world.


There is so much to see and do and don't worry about refreshments. There is a snack bar where you can purchase your candy, drinks and even popcorn before going to see your 4D film. With so much to see and do at the Madame Tussauds NY Wax Museum, this is a must do on your list of things to do while visiting New York City. I had even more photos to share with you but think I've done a good job of sharing a lot with you today. I can't wait to go back and visit the next time I'm in New York City.



Now if you're ever in the New York City are there are the hours:

Sunday - Thursday (10am - 8pm)
Friday & Saturday (10am - 10pm)

Purchasing your tickets online will give you a 40% savings and children under the age of 3 is free.

Let's discuss: Have you ever visited a Madame Tussauds Wax Museum before?

  8. Oh wow. These are haunting. Imagine if some sort of plague kills off human beings and aliens find us ages later - and this is what they see. These wax figures are true to life but scary as all get out!

    1. LOL, I never thought of that but I'm sure since they're so lifelike the aliens would think that we were so cool back then. :)

  16. It's crazy how realistic they look. They also have one in Hollywood. I haven't visited it yet . I should definitely plan that out. I know my little brothers would love it. I love the superheroes, Tupac, Biggie and Bruce Willis one. Great pictures! Looks like you guys had a blast. Keep it up!

    1. There are a few more Madame Tussauds around the country and I hope if I'm ever in a state that has one I can visit. That way I can compare them.

  17. Some are so accurate that you would swear they are real. A few just miss. It must depend on the artist. Your kids will love these shots someday.

    1. You're right, some are a little of a miss but they were all fun. Madison couldn't care less but the bigger kids might be a lot more interested.

    1. Oh Phylicia you have no idea! There were so much figures and I took so many photos that I could quite possibly have had 3 posts. I tried to fit as much as I could into one. However I will share them via social media.
