New York City is home to some of the biggest celebrities and most famous faces—but a walk through Midtown doesn’t always result in getting star struck. Luckily the quirky Madame Tussauds—an iconic wax museum in the heart of Times Square—offers travelers the chance to check getting up close and personal with big names in music, movies and television off their list.
From world leaders to Hollywood stars, the halls of Madame Tussauds are filled to the brim with faces recognized across the globe. Travelers can saddle up for photo ops that will have friends back home believing that lunch with Leonardo DiCaprio really did happen on a visit to the Big Apple.
Madame Tussauds is located at 234 West 42nd Street in Times Square. It’s accessible using the 1, 2, 3, N, Q, R and 7 trains. Hours of operation vary depending on the time of year and tickets can be purchased online at a reduced rate.
