Museu de Cera de Fátima
Museums and Palaces
According to the museum's own motto, «appreciating the 31 scenes in this museum is to understand just why 6 million people visit Fátima ever year.» Through wax figures, the museum tells the story of the Fátima witnesses and the most important historical events.
A special emphasis is placed on the Papal visits - Paul VI in 1967, John Paul II in 1982 and 1991 - and to the scene depicting the ´Beatification of the Shepherds´. This took place on the 13th May 2000 (thus celebrating the first anniversary of the canonisation).
