Barcelona's wax museum called Museu de Cera is located at the end of La Rambla in Barcelona since the 19th century in an incredible palace and inside there are the most important figures of history in wax.

You can see more than 300 personalities, real or fictitious from all periods of history. The waxworks come to life you explain tragic lives, fictitious characters and go through our history as humankind. The wax figures are accompanied by audiovisuals and sound effects that make the experience a lot more realistic.

The Wax Museum an unusual café right next to it that I would recommend you to stop by, it is called El Bosc de les Fades -The Forest of the Fairies-, and it is literally that, a magical space that recreates a haunted forest. You will be able to see trees, fountains and magical creatures inside, a very famous bar for a night out in Barcelona.

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 Wax museum organizes dramatized nocturnal nights visits, they are guided visits done by actors and the "residents" of the museum that will alow you to visit the palace in a different way and more interactive.
