Museu de Cera

Museu de Cera

The city's wax museum is located in a 19th-century landmark palazzo which stands just off the famous Rambla, and brings to life some of the most prominent figures from the history of mankind.

The Museu de Cera provides an opportunity to meet over 300 personalities, both real and fictitious, from all periods of history. Against a backdrop of authentic sets, audiovisuals and realistic sound effects, the waxworks come to life to tell us about their illustrious, and sometimes tragic lives which have crossed the threshold of time.

The Museum de Cera also has two unusual cafés. El Bosc de les Fades is a unique, magical space which recreates a haunted forest, right down to the last detail: trees, fountains, will o' the wisps and other fantastic creatures.

The Passatge del Temps will captivate you with its cutting-edge design and comfortable atmosphere, while offering an innovative take on the ancient art of origami.

The only tactile exhibit at the museum is a bust made of wax. It is available to visually impaired visitors who have come to the museum individually or as part of a group. The other waxworks contain make-up which can deteriorate if touched so they are not available as tactile exhibits. The audioguides do not have audiodescriptions for visually impaired visitors.
