Barcelona’s Wax Museum (Museu de Cera) is located in a small square just off La Rambla boulevard and offers visitors the chance to admire over 300 famous characters immortalized in wax sculptures.
The museum is housed in a gorgeous 19th century Neoclassical building and provides a wonderful mixture of culture, history, music, and entertainment, all rolled up into one-of-a-kind experience.
From Star Wars’ peculiar personages to some of the most notable figures in history, you’ll have the opportunity to meet a series of interesting characters. Some of the most remarkable include: Albert Einstein, Superman, Francisco Franco, Salvador Dalí, and the legendary Don Quixote.
The Museu de Cera experience goes even further into the fantasy with a variety of creative decors and audio-visual effects meant to enrich your visit and make it as authentic as possible.
In addition to the exciting human-like wax figures, the quirky Wax Museum in Barcelona has two enchanting, yet pretty unusual cafes: El Bosc de les Fades – a sort of eerie forest where you can sip cocktails while being surrounded by fairies and gnomes, and the Passatge del temps – an origami-themed bar with a lovely atmosphere.
Another special feature of the museum is El Colmado, an atmospheric place where you can indulge in delicious tapas and even buy some for later.
Whether you’re a huge fan of human-like wax statues or just looking for something different to do in Barcelona, the captivating Wax Museum is certainly a must.
