Madame Tussaud's New York

The world's most famous wax museum, Madame Tussaud's, makes her grand entrance onto the world's most famous street, 42nd Street, in New York City!

With a 200 year history in wax portraiture, Madame Tussaud's new $50 million attraction, in the heart of Times Square , is bringing this one-of-a-kind art form to an American audience, with mind blowing results.

Nearly 2 million visitors have ascended her grand staircase since opening in November 2000, including such celebrities as Robin Williams, Susan Sarandon, The Rock, Barbara Walters, Samuel L. Jackson, Don King, Ivana Trump, Mayor Rudolph Guiliani, Patrick Stewart, and the outrageous Ru Paul, just to name a few.

Hope
When we remember September 11, we remember two types of feelings; the initial shock, fear, and vulnerability, and then the intense, powerful surge of patriotism and strength of a nation pulling together. HOPE captures the emotions of our rising in a compelling visual display centered around a lifelike wax portrait of the three firemen raising the flag at Ground Zero.
Visitors will stand with the firemen as they stood at 5:02pm on September 11, 2002 surrounded by images honoring the countless brave men and women who made it possible for us to heal through their acts of hope, humanity and heroism.
