Museu de Cera, Barcelona

1.8
#35 of 72 in Museums in Barcelona
History, fame, and fantasy come to life at Museu de Cera, 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.  With our world travel planner, Barcelona attractions like Museu de Cera can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The entrance costs €15 and expected me something more from the wax museum. From my point of view, more figures are missing, and that there could be better made. For the cost of the entrance to the Museum, few figures. You can see it in less than 30 minutes. I do not recommend it.

  • Beautiful Museum. A large number of characters. The various environments along the way that make it very interesting.

  • The admission price is extreme compared to the experience. My 13 year old loved it, for me as an adult i believe it really needs an upgrade. The concept was good but the wax figures really need a higher standard. Expensive for what you receive.
  • Although a bit small, you can enjoy major characters that graced the face of the Earth in the past. Even some fictional characters. But it needs more.
  • Do not recommed paid 15 € for it... Was worth maybe 2 € really bad wax figures that you would not know who it is supposed to be without a nameplate... Best part of it was leaving it.
  • I like it when I visited it. Maybe not the best in the world but worth visiting.
  • Don't expect to be a Madame Tuseaud. All the figures and the museum are from the 90's. Any actual figure in it. It shows some of the catalan amd spanish culture figures but not too cool. I won't recommend it to anyone.

Where to stay in Barcelona

Because the city's metro system makes traveling from area to area relatively painless, you have more flexibility in choosing a place to stay. Barceloneta, the neighborhood surrounding the city beach is somewhat removed from the city center, making its hotels popular with families. Only a 15-minute walk from the center, Barceloneta has a more laid-back beach atmosphere but still offers several restaurants and entertainment options. Farther away from the beach and closer to the city center, El Born is a charming neighborhood well-known for its restaurants and lively bar scene. Eixample is also popular as it is more central and home to some of the city's best shopping and tourist sites, including La Sagrada Familia. For a more traditional experience, consider staying in the Gothic Quarter, the heart of Old Barcelona. This picturesque neighborhood boasts a tight network of historical architecture with boutique hotels and traditional restaurants.
