Of course, this is a famous museum) Well, of course you will see there a lot of amazing, incredible, fun and interesting. But changes in the museum are very slow. As far as I understand this is the only problem of the museum in New York. In other cities, the set of statues and scenery changes frequently. In the New York Museum, I was a year after my first visit and hardly noticed a change. 3-4 new statues (TOTAL: a great museum, but if it was changing more often, it would be perfect

A must visit if you are visiting NYC - located at the Time Square next to Ripley’s, this was museum houses famous personalities ( for instance Amitabh Bachchan, Shahrukh Khan and Aishwarya Rai from Bollywood - though the statues doesn’t do justice to them!). There are around 9 floors - each floor has various theme. It also houses Marvel’s Avengers and you can also see 4D marvel movie. Worth a one time visit. You can also get your own wax hands as a souvenir.

Absolutely not worth the $36 entrance fee, was poor at best, I felt they were attempting to scam us at just about every point with photos etc., there was more floor space for shops than wax models,save your money and go somewhere that’s worth it

I'll admit this wasn't one of my must see New York attractions but I thought it would be a fun way to spend a couple of hours. I had a discounted admission ticket to save on the ridiculous price they charge and even that wasn't a saving grace. As soon as you get in, you're taken up to the 9th floor to start at the top and work your way down. That made it sound promising figuring there's going to be 9 floors of exhibits, but I think somebody forgot some of the numbers between 1-9 since we went through the entire basic exhibit (we weren't paying the extra for the add-ons) in about 30 minutes. It wasn't that extensive of an exhibit and the walk down goes through two separate gift shop areas. It was the biggest rip-off of any attraction anywhere. There are so many better things to do in NYC.
