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.

  • Only who has left much for Waxmuseen, otherwise, other sites are more important. Varied for toddlers

  • I was expecting a museum with more figures and better made. You have some very well done and others that give shame. For my missing Spanish personalities, politicians, singers, actors... Then, the Organization of the figures is terrible. A lot of figures of 20th-century leaders all together. Not I can understand as can be Lenin between Franco, Hitler and Churchill; above all when it could have it since with the Che and Fidel. You put a section of writers together and then you get to Unamuno in another room with people who have nothing to do. Or you group them by genre or times, but not mixed.

  • I'm sorry for the person who spend hours making wax dolls, but none seems real. There are many that I could not identify until I read the name. Very, very, very, bad
