The New Wax Museum is located in the heart of the city, in a pretty alley off LA RAMBLA as you walk down on the left, very close to the famous Columbus Monument. In our view, the building that houses the collection of wax statues, which dates back to 1867 and is the former headquarters of the Bank of Barcelona, is almost as interesting as the collection itself.
The Museum has been fully renovated in 2020. It is a fantastic way for younger ones to meet important characters from history and the worlds of culture, art, cinema, and music thanks to the statues of musicians, painters, sculptors, emperors, adventurers, scientists, and many modern celebrities.
We estimate that the visit will take around 1 to 2 hours. It is free for children under 5, and costs 16 euros for young people and retirees, and 20 euros for adult admission.
We recommend taking in its fantastic location as you arrive and checking out the café that is tucked away outside, called EL BOSC DE LES FADES, where you can enter for free and have a drink or something to eat if you want while enjoying the fantasy of the Forest of Fairies.
