Wax Figure Updates
Madame Tussauds New York has a dedicated team of studio artists that work daily to maintain over 200 wax figures. The team inspects each figure at 7:30 am to ensure guests can get up close and personal with the stars looking their very best! On occasion, figures are removed from the attraction floor to be freshly styled and touched up so that they are camera ready for their next photo with you!
The following wax figures are currently off the floor. We apologize for any inconvenience.
- Justin Bieber
- Miley Cyrus
- Whitney Houston
- Jennifer Aniston
- Pope John Paul II
- Taylor Swift

Did you know?
- Each wax figure is colored with several thin layers of oil paint that absorbs into the wax to give it the translucency of human skin.
- Human hair is inserted individually into the wax, a process that takes 6 weeks to complete. The hair is regularly washed and styled by the team.
- Celebrities often donate clothing for their figures, which is routinely dry cleaned.
