However, any exposure of the Wax Museum will please the children as the figures, costumes and decoration as well as the different spaces. They will immerse into each of the recreated decor.

The only drawback to mention some, could be the room dedicated to terror, in which young children may request or want to be accompanied by their parents, and not only for the great recreation of Count Dracula or Frankenstein, but for some representation of a hanged or characters in torture chambers due to its outstanding quality, that would make them feel some fear. This, certifies realism and the excellent quality of the figures set out in the Barcelona Wax Museum.
