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.

Its a ripoff, really. The "museum" is really small. It has 20 statues more or less, only three are good, the rest is extremely bad. Even if you take pictures in 20 minutes you're done. 32 reais for three pictures with an awfull statue of...More

Is very small and overpriced for what it offers. Out of focus, a mix of brazilian historical figures ( Santos Dumont, Princess Isabel and D. Pedro) , with hollywood movie stars and gangsters (Dilma and Lula) Not worthy.

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
