Barcelona Wax Museum, Barcelona

(1/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
History, fame, and fantasy come to life at Barcelona Wax Museum, where eerily realistic wax figures, from emperors to celebrities, are on display. They pose together in tableaus that recreate stills from iconic films, combine artists of the past with contemporary ones, or depict historical moments. In the Bosc de les Fades or "Forest of Fantasy," walk into a realm of magic inhabited by fairies, gnomes...and a cafe. That's right, among the twisted tree trunks you'll find a smiling bartender eager to mix you a drink. Consider purchasing an all-inclusive ticket to the main museum attraction, the Bosc de les Fades, and the design boutique Passatage Del Temps. With this ticket, you'll also receive a souvenir photograph, a guidebook, and a 10 percent discount at the cafe and gift shop.  Make Barcelona Wax Museum a centerpiece of your Barcelona vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Barcelona tourist route planner.

  • We visited on a Tuesday afternoon. The museum is located at the bottom of las ramblas and quite easy to find. It wasn't open when we arrived (3:30) so we went for a drink in the fairy tale cafe, as we...  more »
