Barcelona City Guide The best things to see and do in Barcelona

Barcelona Wax Museum

Have you ever wondered how Albert Einstein, Yassir Arafat or Frankenstein would look like if you had met them in real life? By visiting the Barcelona wax museum you will get as close to them as you can.

In the 1870s, the building was used for keeping jewelry, money and royal seals. It was designed by Elies Rogent which was the architect who conveyed the sentence “I don't know if he is a genius or an impostor” to Antoni Gaudi. It was later restored by the architect Enrique Alarcón who designed the building with influences from his career in theater and film.

Located in the heart of the city center of Barcelona, the 19th century neo-classical building will give you a pleasant view with its architecture.

Enjoy the amazing wax sculptures of famous historical figures while visiting the museum.
