“It seems real”

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.

“Worth the ticket price!”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

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 small children to transmit the world an important message.

Either you are a true believer or not, this visit will allow to fully understand what Fatima is all about.

“Take a look”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

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

“The Story of Fatima Wax Museum”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

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 scene in English You can read what is happening in each scene and take time to look at all of the details. I would think this is a good activities for families.
