Given its prime position on Las Ramblas, you can easily visit the Barcelona Wax Museum during a day of sightseeing in downtown Barcelona. Save time during your visit with skip-the-line entry or make the most of your stay in the city with a Barcelona City Pass—this pass typically provides access to the Barcelona Wax Museum, alongside over 20 other attractions such as Barcelona Zoo and Casa Vicens. Alternatively, visit the Barcelona Wax Museum on a Gothic Quarter walking tour to learn more about the area.
Things to Know Before You Go
For added benefits—such as an audio guide, photo souvenir, and more—opt for an all-inclusive ticket or save time with skip-the-line entry.
Guided tours are typically held every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday at 12pm and 5pm.
Dramatized night visits are also held every Saturday in June, July, August, and September; check in advance for specific timings.
There are two offbeat on-site cafés, one modeled after a fairy-tale forest and the other littered with origami animals.
Barcelona Wax Museum is mostly accessible for wheelchair users thanks to elevators and ramped access points.
How to Get There
Barcelona Wax Museum is situated at the waterside end of Las Ramblas in downtown Barcelona and is easily accessible on foot from most points in the Gothic Quarter and El Raval neighborhoods. You can also access the Barcelona Wax Museum using the Barcelona Metro system—depart at the Drassanes stop (Line 3, Green) and leave via the Rambla exit.
When to Get There
Barcelona Wax Museum is a great year-round, rainy-day option for visitors in Barcelona. The museum typically closes for a few hours in the mid-afternoon but enjoys longer opening hours during the summer months, when you can expect bigger crowds.
