  • Like a lot of the visit and also of the information received from the local guide, who talked about the origin of giant puppets and how they were made and handled various dolls. They have props to people can take pictures with the various characters, politicians, sportsmen, artists etc in my opinion, is worth a visit not only for its cultural aspect but the fun we had together in local hours.

  • I really enjoyed visiting the Embassy the dolls. We were in 09/2016 and casually were doing a promotion where the ticket cost only 5.00. A local guide told us about the Embassy of dolls and how they are dressed in Carnival. Found it rather interesting and definitely worth a visit. My wife and I we took lots of pictures. They offer, hats and props to use in the pictures and is pretty fun.

  • The Embassy of the giant puppets is in old Recife, next to other traditional sights like ground zero and the House of culture, you pay ten reais for the ticket and can see up close around 60 dolls of the traditional Carnival of Recife, is very worthwhile.

  • fantastico
  • É um espaço bonito.
  • É um lugar que vale a pena ir? Para quem quer ver bonecos de Olinda, sim. Pagamos $10 por pessoa e tivemos uma explicação breve de 5 min sobre os bonecos. Tem uma boa diversidade de bonecos e o legal é que você tem o tempo todo que quiser para tirar fotos com eles.
  • Um salão com bonecos de pessoas ilustres que é como um pequeno "museu de cera" desproporcional. Os traços do rosto dos personagens são muito fielmente reproduzidos. Bem divertido.
  • muito lindo
