Owner description: On the 14th of February 1972 the Madrid Wax Museum opened its doors. Located on the Paseo de Recoletos, it is at the start of what is known as the "golden mile" of Madrid Museums. 2,000 square metres split over two floors; it has over forty rooms in which the visitor can travel through time. Thanks to the combination of spaces, environments, lights and sounds, each person who is represented takes on a special dimension in time, which allows the visitor to stand before the character who has been recreated in the environment in which they lived... Permanently being updated, it is a Museum which contains representations of the most prominent figures today: George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Mariano Rajoy, Andrés Iniesta, Penélope Cruz, Antonio Banderas, David Villa, Barack Obama, Rafa Nadal, Mario Vargas Llosa, Iker Casillas, Miley Cyrus and Sponge Bob, have been added to an exhibition in which, among hundreds of figures, you can see El Cid, Camilo José Cela, the Catholic Monarchs, Fernando Torres, Yasser Arafat, Antonio Gala and David Bisbal…, most of the contemporary characters have personally inaugurated their sculptures, which wear clothes from their personal wardrobes, for example Montserrat Caballé, Rafael Alberti, Zinedine Zidane, Antonio Gala, Lola Flores and Miguel Induraín, Joaquín Rodrigo, Severo Ochoa, Mario Vargas Llosa, Rafa Nadal, Joaquín Cortés, Iker Casillas and King Juan Carlos I. The spectacular sets, made by the best artists, are home to the figures and, combined with the Museum’s other attractions like the “Terror Train”, “Simulator” and “Multivision”, they help ensure that our visitors enjoy hours of fun and discovery. And if that’s the case, we’ve achieved our goal.

Average wax museum but it shows in some parts history of Spain that you wont find in other wax museums.
You can go with frinds spend some time have some laughs.
They have famous Spanish artists and their paintings made in wax figuers like Goya and Picaso.
Famous crimes on the second floor, some pirates of the caribbean and dracula hall.
Don't expect much.

If you have been in a Tussaud Museum or pretend to go, don't vist this one. Most of the figures aren't very good made. The terror train is only for laugh, not about terror but about fiction movies. Ok if you have the Madrid card and pretend to laugh, otherwise don't spend your money here.

As it was included in our Madrid Card and in our way to the Barnabéu, we decided to visit but we weren't already expecting Madame Tussauds quality.
First of all, the "museum" is divided in theme areas inside a mall, whitch already isn't not very appealling. Second, most of the waxworks were bad, many of them didn't resemble the person they were meant to, not in the face neither in weight or hight. Third, the "simulator2 and the "horror tunnel" are just embarrasing, sorry, but there's no other word for it. To finish up I'll give them some credit for representing spanish historic figures, which might save the visit for someone.
