Madrid´s Wax Museum Reopens For Christmas

The Madrid Wax Museum reopened on 19 December, with reduced prices and a Chritmas show to boot.

The Wax Museum was opened in 1972 and the perfect place to spend an enjoyable afternoon, especially if you go with the kids.

The iconic museum houses more than 450 waxwork figures that take us through history and  introduces visitors to people of all periods and occupations from different disciplines and fields of knowledge. Among them we find famous athletes, politicians, and celebrities from the past and present.

Historical figures like Cleopatra, Napoleon, and the Kings and Queens of Spain, Presidents of the United States and other leaders who have shaped the world we live in bring the past to life.

There is a special section showcasing the world of children, which features The Simpsons, Harry Potter, Mortadelo and Filemón, Snow White, as well as Frodo from “The Lord of the Rings”.

A crowd favourite is the Horror Room and which takes us to bloodthirsty characters, such as Count Dracula, the Mummy, Freddy Krueger, amongst other creepies.

The museum also has three special attractions: the Simulator, consisting of frozen tunnels, the centre of the Earth, and Space, all experienced at breakneck speed; the Terror Train, carrying us from Jurassic Park to the Galactic Tavern, and taking in famous murders and other surprises; and finally, Multivision, which offers a wonderful view of Spanish history using 27 slide projectors with hexaphonic sound.
