Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes, Recife

#7 of 53 in Museums in Recife
At Carnival an army of giant Olinda heads parade the city streets. Each head portrays a celebrity icon, a famous politician, or a fictional character from a film or book. No matter the subject matter, it is a fantastically silly spectacle that's a cultural phenomenon specific to Brazil. Lucky for you, Casa dos Bonecos Gigantes is open all year long. There you can view past heads and even try on a few for size. The outlandish expressions on the head's faces are sure to bring a smile to yours as you pose for photo after photo between the gigantic craniums.

  • View on TV the giant puppets, does not give us the exact proportion of the size of each figure. Each deytalhe that is shown comes loaded pwernambucano Carnival tradition.

  • It's very cool to see the giant puppets but I didn't think the amount charged is fair because you can make the space is not large in 15 minutes. The ticket cost 25 reias and gaze beyond the House of dolls, the Embassy of Pernambuco that is close. Who knows with a guided tour by Museum staff this value be fairer to pay.

  • Ok
  • Expensive But like so much
  • Show
  • Legal.
  • The giant puppets of Olinda is culturally wonderful to know, shame that some agencies do not take because, do not receive money and end up taking people on Reef Dolls House (which is not true). It's not a big space, but has many legal dolls and beautiful to enjoy, people who work there (creators's employees) are fantastic people, teach the tradition for visitors with pleasure! The photos are beautiful and have the option of taking a real Doll or loading next to the traditional dolls!!! Worth paying the value of the input, very cool!
