The Basics

Opened in 1979, the Mexico City Wax Museum houses hundreds of lifelike public figures—including Mexican presidents, singers such as Lady Gaga, and even fictional Mexican characters like Chespirito—across 14 separate exhibits. Save time by purchasing a skip-the-line ticket in advance. For a full day of fun, combo tickets are available for the wax museum and the adjoining Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum (Museo de Ripley).
