Founded in 1882 and named after the caricaturist Alfred Grévin, Musée Grévin is one of the oldest wax museums in Europe. Today, Musée Grévin has over 450 wax figures on display with new personalities added each year.
Musée Grévin is the perfect place to go if you’re looking for a break from the more serious cultural tourist activities in Paris. The tour of the museum starts with a winding Hall of Mirrors and then opens up into a light and sound show. After, make your way through Musée Grévin to see the wide range of wax figures with the perfect mix of historical French figures and figures of modern, international stars. Some famous personalities located here are Leonardo DaVinci, Joan of Arc, Jean de la Fontaine, Auguste Rodin, Michael Jackson, Brad Pitt, Ray Charles, and le Petit Prince. Feel free to interact with Musée Grévin and pose with every figure. This museum is also kid friendly and offers story-tours and guided tours by an actor in a costume about the history, celebrities, and secrets of Musée Grévin.
