Want to spend a day with your favorite celebrities without leaving New York City? Just stop by Madame Tussauds Wax Museum to pose with wax figures of your favorite, actors, actresses, athletes, musicians and more. Meagan Brauer of PopUp New York took CBSNewYork along to see some of her favorite parts of the museum as well as some of the best things to do in the area.
The Wax Figures
There are more than 250 measurements to make sure that each wax figure is exact. The museum even makes sure that the figures are up to date by updating the tattoos as the celebrities do! The celebrities make sure that the wax figures are current too, by donating their clothing to wax alter egos.
