The Opening Night Party, which is a party-decorated room where you’ll be able to see and take photos of the world’s most famous celebrities, is one of the best sections of the museum.
After visiting the Opening Night Party, you’ll walk through other themed rooms, where you’ll bump into different U.S. Presidents, singers, sportsmen and women, leaders, militaries and other celebrities. You’ll also walk into the White House’s yellow oval room to meet Obama and we recommend taking a photo as it is extremely realistic!
If you’re not easily scared, then we dare you to go to the "Scream attraction", where the wax figures are mixed with real actors who will go to great lengths to frighten the visitors.
Great with the New York Pass
If you have the New York Pass or any type of discount, the visit is definitely worthwhile. Otherwise, the admission fare is a bit pricey. One very positive aspect is that the museum is opened until late.
