Wax famous figures (natural size) exhibition in Bucharest

Last Updated on

I have to say that I didn’t go (yet!) to those big museums hosting wax figures of famous people or characters exhibitions. So yes, I was delighted to hear that there was a temporary such exhibition in Bucharest with figures from the famous dedicated museum in Sankt Petersburg, and, consequently, I went to see it. I went today – in a very rainy day 😉

The exhibition “Myth, Fiction and Reality” is hosted by the National Geology Museum in Bucharest and it can be visited until February 8th 2012. The ticket price is 15 lei (~4,5 euro) for an adult and 7 lei (a little over 2 euros) for a child.. For photographing there is a supplementary tax  of 10 lei (2,5 euro).The exhibition is open from Tuesday to Sunday between 10.00 – 17.00.

The exhibition will be closed for maintenance between 19th-23rd January. Find the details here.

I “met” some famous people like Shakespeare, but also Gioconda, Zeus, Aphrodite, Shreck and some others Here are photos with almost all of the figures exhibited in the museum.
