It is a good idea for a rainy afternoon or a night out with children. You will love the submarine and the old ships. You should be warned in advance that these types of exhibits are a bit strange (like any other wax museum) and the mixture of historical figures with other 80´s figures can be quite shocking. Imagine the composers of the nineteenth century with ET, Star Wars, JR or Lady Di. Sure to visit the Museu de Cera will not leave you indifferent. Ptge de la Banca, 7 (Ciutat Vella)
