It seems that you are in Jerusalem when Jesus was there with Mary, Joseph and the disciples. Amazing. the images are very beautifully done in wax.

One might think why should pay 7,5€ to visit this 31 scenario wax museum. But if you are not very acquainted with the story of the Fatima (even if you are!) this can take you to a time machine to a place and period of a very small and poor place in a lost village where Our Lady choose three...

Although most people know the story, but the museum presents the events well. The figures of the children are well done and the presentation is excellent especially the vision of Hell. As far as attractions, this is not the best, but a nice way to break up the day as you walk the streets of Fatima

This museum was a nice exhibit explaining the story of Fatima. It is a public museum, not a religious site. The wax figures and scenery are very realisitic and a good depiction of the story. The museum has about 30 scenes and although the plates with the explaination are in Portuguese, you can get a pamphlet where it explains each... More

Just a museum where you can see the life of Christ represented. Very simple, if you have no time you will not miss anything important in Fatima. Its not a must. More historic if you see the places where all things happened in Fatima, house of Lucia, Francisco, Jacinta, the place where they played and so on. These are real... More

This museum might be a good idea for children or curious non-believers to understand the events of Fatima in 1917. For adults who know the story, it is unnecessary. It simply depicts the most important events via wax figures in appropriate and well designed settings. Good rainy day activity but not a must-see.

The Museu de Cera is a great way to learn the story of the apparitions of the three shepherd children in Fátima. There isn't anything fancy about the museum, nor even of the scenes created of the children, but it does serve as a visual aid to understand the history of this pilgrimage area.
