Visit: Grevin Museum, 10 boulevard Montmartre, 75009 Paris France
Paris was a busy place in the 19th century, and the public wanted to know everything that was going on. Journalist Arthur Meyer (1844-1917) came up with the idea of creating life-size, three-dimensional models of the people who made the headlines in the famous daily paper "Le Gaulois". Meyer's idea was simple: to create a place where the public could walk through a setting peopled with wax figures. It was an instant success!
Discover a completely renovated Grevin Wax Museum. Experience the spirit of Paris of yesterday and today with scenes from the major events of the 20th century, French history and the latest news.

We enjoyed the wax museum very much. All the wax figures looked so very real. It was amazing how real they really looked. I would recommend going thru the museum.
Very entertaining and amusing. Really enjoyed it and the kids loved it.
The line for w tickets or voucher was just as long as the line wo them. I liked having mmt tickets/ voucher in hand early bc things sell out. We did a day trip and the museum is a hot tourist spot. Very crowded but we enjoyed it.
This tour was amazing!
The show in the beginning was awesome.
Some of the wax figures looked incredibly real, however, there were a few that just wasn't great. But overall its an interesting experience.
What a fab thing to do on a rainy day. There were a few celebrities that we didn't know or recognise as of course they were from French film and TV but it was still a good few hours fun. The mirrored room and light show as you enter was quite stunning.
Pop into the cafe next door, the menus are on masks and the food is really good!
For those who like to learn everything aut of just a couple of words, the Direct Access Ticket to Grevin Wax Museum worked as expected. For those who are interested in some details, here they are. First of all, there was no waiting line at Grevin's highly unusual for a Paris attraction!: we went staight ahead to the entrance. The explanation of the lack of interest in this museum became obvious very soon after entering it. After a short, uncomfortable and uninteresting light and sound: show in a cicular hall of mirrors that has nothing in common with the object of the museum! we had to walk through a series of rooms more or less populated with wax statues. Unfortunately, almost all of these statues were placed in such positions so that it was impossible to take photos of a real human as if he/she would be interacting in any manner with the characters depicted by the statues -- a huge minus compared to any of the Madame Tussaud's similar museums around the world! The number of international personalities represented by the statues doesn't compare itself with the one in Madame Tussaud's facilities. To make a long story short, visiting Grevin's Museum was an interesting but rather poor experience. It's worth having it once once being the keyword!.
The Grevin Wax Museum invites you to experience the spirit of Paris of yesterday and of today, through astounding scenes and more than 200 wax figures.
