Whether its learning to shake it with Beyonce or being scared out of your wits in the live action "Chamber of Horrors Live - Featuring Van Helsing!" experience (based on the Universal Pictures film starring Hugh Jackman), Madame Tussauds New York takes you beyond reality to put you in the distinct moments and places where the celebrities are.
The 85,000-square-foot attraction covers five floors and features several distinctly themed areas that take you from a hot Hollywood party with guests such as Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts to a gothic graveyard in Transylvania featuring the Universal Pictures character Van Helsing. Rub elbows with world leaders and those who have shaped history and then meander on to the set of American Idol® where you have just become the next contestant. Take a behind-the-scenes look to see how we do the cool things we do or put yourself in the moments that have shaped popular culture. At Madame Tussauds New York, you are not just watching the moment, you are living it
