Musee Grevin - Review
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.

Musee Grevin, Paris Reviews
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.
My girlfriend didn't like the Pairs Grevin Museum. Most of the wax figures look like trans she kept mentioning! Interesting and freaky at the same time! Some appear to be somewhat realistic and many others not so much! Strange atmosphere. We didn't like the wax figure of the USA President Trump stabbed and lying dead on the floor. What's the real purpose for that? Why him and not any of the other US Presidents? We were plenty glad to get out of the museum. Not a family atmosphere. Don't bring your kids.
Bought the museum pass and tried to hit as many places as possible. But this is definitely one of the best wax museum in terms of variety. If you are in the area, give it a go!
If you know French culture, both modern and old, then this place is for you. We aren't that well versed, so a lot of the models were unfamiliar, though it does lead to a few misunderstandings as occasionally you may ask a modern dressed model to move out if the way. Historical figures were more easily recognisable. The light show at the begining was impressive, but get in first to make sure you see it all. The historical section ws slightly gruesome and therefore perhaps not suitable for young children. We used the Paris Attractions Pass to get in and so had effectively already paid, so cant say if I would have been disappointed if i had paid at the door to see half a museum I couldn't identify. Having said that, I did enjoy the visit, the models were quite realistic and I certainly don't regret going.
One of the best attractions in Paris despite the subtle appearance. Contains many wonderful wax statues of famous celebrities that are replaced every now and then. A must see
