Well worth the visit to reiterate the story. Simply and well put together. The models are lifelike and depicted well.

We travelled a very long long journey by car from Swindon, UK to visit the place of our Lady of Fatima in Portugal last August 2015 in time for a summer holiday. The route on the way to France started the expensive toll rates charges up to reaching the place of Fatima in Portugal. There are routes for free in... More

It is a good tour to take, more to gain an understanding of what actually happened as there were detailed that I had not heard about. It is actually a Good News story but it will pull on your heartstrings at times knowing some of the events. It also speaks to the sheer faith of the children to endure the... More

It exceeded my expectations. I am glad I went. I learned a lot and cleared some doubts I had. The wax dolls are very well done and everything is clean and neat. If you have time, consider going. I believe the kids will also enjoy.

Reciting the history of the apparitions in Fatima, with the little shepherds, the Angels, the Blessed Virgin, but also with the persecutions and the troubles the little visionaries had. Very impressive as if they were real!

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...

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
