The Grevin Museum is a wax museum of famous personalities and named after its artistic director Alfred Grévin. It showcase more than 200 personalities from past and present. We did not enter because the ticket price was not cheap. We went to the gift shop to browse but did not buy anything.

Impressive figures, clever compositions, funny and easy going atmosphere. Not many visitors, which is another plus! .... Unexpected hit, as I'm not really fond of wax museums! A bit costly but it deserves it!

We only visited because we bought the Paris pass, otherwise would never had thought about it. It was very interesting to see how many sculptures they had, the ages of some of them was outstanding and they still looked good. I can't compare them to anywhere else but it was worth the
45 mins visit, shame they had someone famous there just after we left, and the rude security guards wouldn't tell us who it was, they had red carpet out, a Mercedes sls amg parked outside and police escorts.

This is a poor relation to Madame Tussaud’s in London. The much hyped hall of mirrors mending standing in a 7 sided mirrored room with a myriad of lights being switch on and off.
Somewhat underwhelming!
Otherwise the exhibits are good likenesses of many French but other nationalities as well. Our teenagers raced through and found it all very un interesting.

As my family toured the Grevin museum, my 8 month old son, started to get hungry and started to cry, ruining the enjoyment of the other guests. As a mother I did the logical thing, and fed my son, as he can not control his needs; and wait until we leave the venue. Well...I guess some uneducated employee came up to me and requested that I leave. Really?! Are you kidding!? Its his human right to be fed, plus it was done in a very private matter! My husband made a complaint and was told by Jason the manager that we would be issued a full refund for two tickets, but the cash was closed and was unable to access it. All our contact info was given and said we'd be contacted. We have yet to hear from them. They ignored my husbands calls and emails, so Ill let the reviewers made a decision before booking here!

Now let me ask a few questions to possible future guests. Do you want to really want to visit an establishment that wont respect your basic rights? Do you want to book a function here knowing that the staff wont return your messages and risk ruining your future function. Jason clearly doesn't respect or honour his word.

My husband and I are willing for any media member to contact us regarding this issue. We would be too please to talk about this. Just respond to this and we'll contact you.

To add salt to the wound my husband was so, insulted that he picked up the stroller in frustration and broke it, leaving us disadvantage on getting back home, something he'd never do, if he was in a clam setting.

If you are looking for something completely different to do in Paris, this is wonderful. I had visited Madame Tussauds in London only 2 weeks before and I actually found the waxworks portion of this museum to be better. The setting mainly takes place in an old opulent theatre and the ''characters'' all celebrities are sitting in the audience and you can pose alongside them. They may be at a bar, playing a piano etc. it is all very cleverly presented. Each character is presented in a setting that suits there persona. Models are on catwalks, actors are in plot situations, acrobats are walking on tightropes etc. They are all there from lady Ga Ga to Queen Elizabeth. Most are lifelike many are not! There are many French personalities (actors, politicians, sports stars etc.) but it is all excellent. Some of the figures are so well done you really do have to look twice because of the way they are displayed. I felt the finish and reality of these figures was in a lot of cases better than Madame Tussauds (my opinion) and far better displayed as an experience rather than just something to do. On first entering there is a rather silly strobe light presentation that has very little meaning but somehow suits the whole experience. I am still trying to work that bit out!

The wax museum in Paris was Awesome but cant beat Madame Tussauds in London, it was free for me since i had the (Paris Pass) the admission fees was EUR 22 € per-adult, to get there take the Metro stations Grands Boulevards (line 8 or 9). I will give it (8 out of 10) of all the wax museum i visited so far, So go there its worth watching the wax and etc. Do it since you are in Paris :)

I purchased a Paris card which had this museum as one of the many selections, so unless we had thus card we would have never have known about it. My 11 yr old son and I had a wonderful time and enjoyed the different experience, the employees were helpful and polite and bring English recognised most of the wax statues. My son especially loved jacky chan and bring able to stand and sit next to the exhibits. He had a wonderful time and learnt I bit more about Paris, there is a rock cafe just down the road and some wonderful Victorian arcades to walk thru, we had a wonderful time and would recommend anyone with children to go.

I visited recently Musee Grevin.
I had read on guidebooks that they increase entrance fee very often. My guide book was published on 2008 and the rate was 9 euros at the time. I thought rate will be something like 12 euros at wortst case, so I thought to give this place a try.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that the entrance fee is 20 euros!!! World class attractions such as Louvres,Notre Dame or even Chateau de Versailles are cheaper than this!
As I was there anyway, I decide to give it a go...
Firstly there is a room with a couple of exotic wax figures where there is a"show" taking place as an introduction to the museum. Show is mainly some lights and cheesy music, very "kitch" on my opinion. Then you enter to the main museum. To be honest the pattern on making the exibition is a bit unclear. There are rooms and corners that present historical facts such as St Bartholomeus night, or Jean d'Arc burning on the stake, there are rooms with various comix figures such as Louky Louk and Obelix, a room with Nostradamous and Da Vinci, Brigitte Bardo advertising a kitchen (!), rooms with figures of French kings, rooms with Belle Epock writters, rooms with figures that have no relation to each other, eg Ghadi,Madona,Harison Ford as Indiana Jones,American presidents ,French celebrity chefs and St Tereza at the same large room, or the so "bar" with the famous people, where there are figures with Hemingway, Sartre,Dali,Kallas,Renault and other characters. A "theater" with French politicians, actors etc. Jimmy Hendrix next to a "punk singer" and other rooms that don't make lots of sense...
Some of the figures are nicely made with detail on the costumes etc, especially the statues of French kings, Esmeralda and Cuisimond and most of the figures that had to do with persons lived a loong time ago- so we don't know exactly how they looked like. But most of the figures representing people of today or anyway of the recent past, are badly made. For example I could not recognise who the figure supposed to be even having the long mustache (Salvador Dali), I kind of guessed who this French football player should be (Zinedin Zidan) and I had to look on the real pictures on the screen behind them to realise thesetwo statues were Celine Dion and her husband. I mostly guessed that this guy next to Obama was Vladimir Putin and supposed this impressive black woman was Naomi Cambel from the clothes she had on...
Towards the end of the exibition, on the large room with various figures (Indiana Jones,Madona etc), on the left there is a small staircase. If you climb up, there is a small exibition and a 5 minutes video on how the wax statues are made. Most people skip this part, but I beliieve it 's interesting nice to have a look there too.
As a conclusion: Musee Grevin was not a dive, but wasn't something really impressive either. I think admission fee is far too expensive for what's on offer though, and I wouldn't recommend it!

PS: Excuse me for not writing some names right. I hope you recognise who I mean!

My girlfriend and I went here as a break from all the busy historic sites and we had a blast. We used a Paris Pass to skip the line, which was very long. When we got in we were first treated to a very exciting light show with sound effects and moving figures. The wax figures were very life like and detailed even though some were not the proper size, in a picture i actually look bigger than Arnold Schwarzenegger! Being from Canada we did not recognize a lot of the french politicians or entertainers, however there are still many famous singers and actors from North America included in the displays. There are also all sorts of figures from famous movies and literature. Overall we found it to be very fun.
