The Beginning

The house where the museum is placed in Mexico City was inaugurated in August 27th of 1979 by the expresident José López Portillo. The house was constructed by Antonio Rivas Mercado a great architect. The house has a particular style that is called "Art Noveau".

A modern vision

Walking along the museum, means entering to a world with a modern vision of what a museum must be. In the "Museo de cera" you are allowed to touch and take a picture with your favourites characters made in wax.

How we can make a wax sculpture?

The first thing is to choose a character, then for the face, there are two ways to make it:
-directly on the person
-or by modeling the wax just like a scultpure
Then in a mold of gypsum we put melted wax, and then we start with the details, eyes and teeth of crystal. The beard and hair are so difficult to put because we have to put it one by one.
