I may have seen a few celebrities on the streets of New York City since my move here, but the best place to run into stars of all generes and ample selfie opportunities is only one place, Madam Tussauds. My brother and I snagged a deal on Groupon and claimed admission tickets for about $12 less than regular admission of $37. I had some reservations about the wax museum because I wasn’t quite sure how much excitement could be spread amongst five floors, but Madame Tussauds created some fun with props, pictures and very realistic looking wax figurines. I was literally waiting for one of the figures to yell “Boo!” and have a heart attack ensue immediately.
The elevator opens up to a celebrity party where some very famous guests were mingling including Jennifer Lopez, Denzel Washington, Kim Kardashian, George Clooney and Johnny Depp.
Creepy, I know! The other parts of the museum included scenery of big hit movies, music and political figures and even some action hero fun.
We took advantage of some photo opps and I finally got my shot in Hollywood and to make a long overdue Presidential address.
Madame Tussauds is playground for all and something out of the ordinary to break up this cold brick winter. The regular admission price may be on the slightly steep side for what the museum has to offer, but there were a few photos I was able to trick my parents with. It is a playground for all ages and a web for tourists, which if I am learning the way this city works and how to be a New Yorker, it is too cliche to be anywhere where everyone wants to be. Until next time.
