There was a 25% discount online for New York City residents. Alas I did not purchase my tickets online and was not able to get the 25% discount at the ticket desk. Nevertheless, the sales staff offered me $5 discount for each ticket.
The museum presented wax figures from a variety of backgrounds ranging from political, sports, entertainment and so forth.
The first exhibit hall showcased Hollywood celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Leo DiCaprio.

Some figures were disappointing and bore no resemblance at all. For instance the Beatles were pretty nondescript. In my opinion, one of the best wax figure was that of the director Steven Spielberg.

The highlight of the current exhibit was the boy band, One Direction, which was the last exhibit. The wax figures were remarkably done with close resemblance to the band members.
With a teenager in our group, we of course sat down with the One Direction members and had some snapshots taken by the museum staff. It came out very well. You can see how how remarkable the wax figures are of the group below.
