The Grevin Wax Museum was such a Surprise! We all enjoyed it. Such a silly thing to do in Paris. Part of French culture, you never really think about. We were greeted by French Actors and Actresses, Sports people and Politicians, We had No Idea who they were! This added to the fun. This is part of the Paris Pass... More

We went here as a stop gap as we had planned a day of relaxing, as it was a public holiday, but the Grevin was open. Well, as you travellers know, that doesn't happen :-) What seemed to be a cheap cheesy attraction, turned out to be quite an enjoyable visit. The place is quite amazing actually with plenty to...

I had never been in a wax museum before so I was very exited to go there. To be honest I was disappointed. It was too dark inside to take photos without flash ( some rooms were even so dark that it was hard to get a good look to figures ) ,many of the figures were so fake, too... More

French culture and history in this wax museum. A beautiful old theater turned museum where George Melies once performed magic. Wax characters from French comics, show business, and the revolution. Comes early as the line to get in gets longer in the afternoon. Worth a visit!

If I hadn't already paid over €40 to get in, I would have left while standing in the queue. Once we got in I was disapointed to discover that many of the statues were of French celebrities I'd never heard of. Still my 6 year old daughter enjoyed it even though she recognized very few of the statues. For non... More

We have never been to a wax museum before so we went since it was free to us. The first time we went it was closed for a week, so we came back. It was interesting but I would not pay to visit one of these again. Lots of french famous people (no surprise) and then world figures. Many of... More

We purchase Paris Passes on recent trip, and since Grevin was included and I'd never been to a wax museum, we decided to check it out. While it was interesting to a certain extent, I think time is better spent in the many wonderful art museums and historical landmarks. The wax museum was well-done, but it felt very commercial and...

Our visit to Grevin was good, it is very informative to see how the wax models are manufactured, and the vast amount of models in different attire is great.

I was amazed at how you can go right up to the wax figures and touch them. You can stand right next to them and get your picture made. It is so cool! Usually wax museums have the wax figures behind a barrier but not here! That's what made it special!
