While we were in New York, we visited Madame Tussauds. It was my first time visiting a Madame Tussauds. I am yet to visit the one in London, so I was happy to visit this one. The wax museum was celebrating Bollywood, so there was a DJ and some Bollywood dancers, which was good entertainment. We didn’t plan to visit Madame Tussauds. It just happened because our hotel was next door to the museum, and we decided to go in. I wish we planned our visit beforehand. It is a lot cheaper to buy the tickets online, rather than at the door. We would have saved around $20 if we booked the tickets online.
My first impression of Madame Tussauds New York was that I got the feeling of being in a club. The music was way too loud. I didn’t understand why the music had to be that loud in a wax museum but we quickly got on with it.
We got closer to the stars for sure, and we took lots of photos. You may have seen some of my shots on Instagram if you follow me on there. I have been disturbing the timelines all week now.
There was a lot to photograph. The kids loved posing next to the celebs, especially my daughter. She had a fantastic time. It was like Christmas came early for her.
We took a break after an hour or so. There was a little restaurant, so we got some drinks and pizza. The kids needed a break and we adults were shattered as well. After our lunch, we carried on admiring the beautiful wax creations. Some were more amazing than others. I really like the ones of the Royal Family and Princess Diana. They looked very real.
We decided to skip the world-exclusive Ghostbusters: Dimension Virtual Reality Experience bit because we were advised our kids may not like it much. Which was a shame, since we had that package on our tickets already.We would have saved a few dollars and not bothered getting a platinum ticket if we knew the reality experience may not be age appropriate. But we made the most of the rest of our time there by heading off to watch Marvel 4D movie. It was about 20 minutes, and we all enjoyed the short movie.
Overall, we had a great time. We were at the museum for around 3 hours in all. I would love to visit Madame Tussauds in other locations, but will make sure to plan the visit.
