The Wax Museum

Have you ever imagined taking a photo of yourself with Cleopatra or finding yourself face to face with Salvador Dalí? In Barcelona there is a timeless place in which you can meet famous people from history and the cinema and spend a moment together with them in their world.  We're talking about the Wax Museum which is located on La Rambla, just a stone's throw from the statue of Christopher Columbus.  Are you ready for an adventure?

Visiting and prices

The museum is inhabited by wax statues, on a real life scale, of former royalty, people from Spanish traditional history, figures from legends and novels, famous explorers, infamous murderers, painters and artistic geniuses who have played their part in Spanish and international cultural history.  Would you recognize them all?  If you are planning a stag or hen do in Barcelona and you want to organize something truly memorable, why don't you send an email to the museum's admin team? They can arrange an unforgettable evening for you and your friends among the wax statues and ghosts from the past!  Entry for adults costs €15.00 while €9.00 is the cost of an entry ticket for children up to the age of 11 and pensioners.  If you would like to visit the museum with an audio-guide, the entry fee for adults costs €18.50 and the discounted price is €12.50.

Other things to do at Barcelona's Wax Museum

In addition to the amazing real-scale wax reproductions of famous people, Barcelona's Wax Museum will surprise you in at least two other different aspects.  First of all, you can choose to attend the night shows which add further excitement to the experience.  We would point out that the location of the Museum is already quite attractive in its own right: the building is in a Neo-Classical style and is reminiscent of the mysterious setting of the stories by Edgar Allan Poe.  The night time visit that we are suggesting is called "The Curator" and can be personalized. In order to organize this, you would need to contact the Museum's administration department whose email address is: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and they will be able to propose an itinerary which will round off the evening with a group dinner, the perfect way to let of steam and spend some time in good company.  So that you never forget how much fun it was to spend time here with your family and friends, the Museum can also offer some very special photo shots: you can pose in a disguise and impersonate famous people as you walk around Barcelona.  Wouldn't you like to be in the shoes of Leonardo da Vinci while visiting Park Güell? In our opinion, he would have been delighted to do this!

The Bosc de les Fades

The Bosc de les Fades is a really special bar which is situated inside Barcelona's Wax Museum.  Here you can enjoy a fantastic cocktail surrounded by an enchanted forest, as if you had suddenly found yourself inside an animated fairy story populated by the usual good and bad characters.
