Musée Grévin Museum In Paris France

The Musée Grevin is a wax museum in Paris that is designed to bring famous people and events back to life in the form of wax copies.

Founded in the January of 1882 this museum was modelled on Madame Tussauds in London and includes wax copies of famous people such as Charles de Gaulle of France, John F Kennedy a United States of America president that visited Paris with his wife, as well as people like Marylyn Monroe and Charlie Chaplin.

It is set in a beautiful building with lots of character and is situated in the Montmartre area located on the Grands Boulevards along the right hand side bank of the River Seine of Paris, France.

Musee Grevin Museum In Paris France

This waxwork museum will take you on a journey through history, magic, illusion, and mystery with around 500 different wax models that range from politicians, actors and models through to the pope, French chefs, sporting stars, writers such as Hemingway, film-makers such as Alfred Hitchcock, and important figures in history such as Joan of Arc, etc.

The Musée Grévin wax museum also features spectacular waxwork scenes from French history and you can get to see a very dramatic display from the French revolution.

But as you climb up a marble staircase you will enter the room of mirrors or the Palais des Mirages, as it is known, which is a hexagonal room that has a very special effect with the lights and multiple reflections from the mirrors that go from floor to ceiling and completely surround you.

Children will certainly love the whole museum and be very impressed by the many deforming mirrors in the Palais des Mirages section and will be a rather pleasant treat for them rather than looking at works of art by the likes of Picasso and Rodin on their time in Paris.

We have not seen this ourselves, but have heard there is often an actor pretending to be one of the wax models who then moves so as to surprise everyone, so beware if you have a weak heart!

You will be pleased to know that photography is allowed and there is also a gift shop, but things do tend to be a bit on the expensive side, including the admission fee, especially when you consider how very little is charged for some of the other museums in Paris.

The Musée Grévin is open from 10am through to 6pm on a Monday through to Friday and on a Saturday, Sunday and during the school holidays it is open from 10am through to 7pm, but please note that you cannot enter this museum under one hour before it closes.  This lovely wax museum is also closed on national holidays.
