Almost similar to the London’s famous wax museum Madam Tussauds, Paris also came up with its own collection waxwork in the Grevin Museum. This museum was founded in 1882 and since its opening, nearly 500 waxwork figures have been added to its collection. The wax artwork features some of the famous personalities from the fields of entertainment, politics and history. For instance, you can see wax figures of celebrities like George Clooney, Brad Pitt as well as political personalities like Barack Obama. The museum also has a section where wax models are used to depict some famous historical incidents like the fall of the Berlin Wall.
As you enter the museum, the first attraction of the museum is the ‘Hall of Mirrors’ – filled with deforming mirrors on the wall that showcase a unique light show. The next stop is at the ‘Spirit of Paris’ where you get to sit beside the wax figures of famous personalities. In ‘The Champion’ section you get to meet sports celebrities. At the end, ‘The Discovery Tour’ reveals the secrets behind the making of these waxworks. For children, ‘The Children’s World’ puts up fictional characters as well as famous personalities related to the children’s movies.

This was a nice change of pace from the history & museums all week. Visited on our last day, we enjoyed the light show being super funky and the old theatre it appeared to be housed in. Some of the wax figures almost seemed to jump out of their seats! Cleanest restrooms in all of Paris. If you need a change of pace, this is it.
Les points positif et négatif : Dans les points positif je souhaiterai mentionner une bonne quantité d'oeuvre dans le musée avec un grand réalisme. Dans les points négatif et il y en a pas mal, Tout d'abord le prix je trouve que ça n'est pas très abordable et même je dirai que c est chère pour ce que c'est. En visite à Paris et voulant découvrir les endroits les plus populaires ce musée et une de mes plus grosses déceptions sur la visite de la capitale. Et je ne parle pas du monde fou qui viennent juste pour prendre des photos avec leurs oeuvres favorite.
Fun and different museum. Didn’t know much of the wax figures as I am but French. Neat set up. We were basically tackled by an employee to take our pictures and then given no direction as to what to do to view them. Just strange. Overall it was a fun museum.
This wax museum is really pretty cool! The wax statues are so life-like. I couldn't even tell that the security guard standing near one of the wax statues was actually real until he turned his head - that's how good of a job they do. There are lots of different settings, including: the theatre, medieval, cartoons, sports, politicians, writers, movie stars, and television shows. There is a souvenir shop near the end as well. This is definitely worth a visit if you have some spare time!
Was a pleasant surprise. Museum Pass will take you through otherwise there is a ticket for the entry
