Is not bad, but I won`t go again, is very expensive for what you see ( I thought I would see more Brazilian characters). I know that the artists involve in the creating process put lot of effort on it , but i think it...More

What a rip-off. Expensive and weird. Nelson Mandela holding a Rome Michelin Guide, upside down? Batman?? Jeez... The kids got to "wax" their hand, at a fee (of course). Only go there if you've exhausted all other options!

You pay allot for almost nothing. The place has only a few rooms and statues. And even the statues are not that good. Dont go! And if you go, know that the intire tour at the house takes like 10 min.

My husband and I decided to visit it because of the reviews we read here. It is an absurd to compare it to the Madame Tussaud's in London and NY. In this wax museum you will find mainly fiction characters such as Batman, Superman, Jack...More

It's still a very small and new wax museum but it is uncommon for brazilians and definitely is worth a visit.

Partly our own fault for mis-translating, but this 'museum' is over-priced and under informative: there are a few was-works, if they had been of people of historical or cultural importance to Brazil/South America, with information about them this would have been good, as it is...More
