It was a warm day in Seoul on our day to visit the Palaces. We had a list of places to go to with our BTS edition of Discover Seoul Pass. This was one of the places to go to. It was cool and the place was full of figures of people we know, especially our Korean idols and famous leaders of the world.

We took our time going from floor to floor and there were also other guests from our country, the Philippines. What was great about the place is that it was not just a museum of wax figures, they also had games and 3D figures you can have photo ops with. They also had a souvenir shop where we bought stuff of our idols ( G Dragon, LMH and KSH)

It was a good afternoon for me and my son. We enjoyed it. We have been to a wax museum in HK but this was great because of our Kdrama and Kpop idols.

Thanks Grevin Seoul, we had fun . Thanks too for sending souvenir photos through my email.

Worthwhile visit. You can go through the process of making your sculpture, makeup, costume and finally, taking picture.

So you won’t find much mention of this place among the top attractions in Seoul. However I think it’s definitely worth the visit if you have time to spare. They have quite a few games/ interactions so it keeps you entertained rather than just walking around the wax figures.

Really nice place to take pictures. I think that this is funny when you come in and you feel like the wax people are real people or that real people is wax people. I don’t think so that this is type of museum that you have to go there. But if you have free time pr it’s rainy day you can go there.

Grevin Museum is composed by four floors. Each room has a theme and with it a matching sound and light system, making the experience all the more realistic and engaging.

After you buy your ticket you will be instructed by the staff to take the lift to the top floor and then you move your way down to the beginning area. Always keep your ticket at hand. You will need it to activate the interactive games and activities throughout your visit. You will be able to play the roulette with George Clooney and Brad Pitt, a basketball match with Michael Jordan, attend a class in which Steve Jobs and Einstein will be your teachers, take a photo in Andy's Warhol studio, land the presidential airplane with Leo DiCaprio guidance, learn the process of how to make a wax figure and morph your face with one of your favourite celebrities in the beauty salon. Some of these activities will give you the possibility to send the end result to your email if you wish to do so.

The 4th floor starts with a walk on the red carpet. Prepare yourself for the clapping and paparazzi and to be greeted by Hallyu celebrities. After you indulge them in taking a selfie with you, keep walking. In no time you will find yourself surrounded by Hollywood stars from the Ocean's Thirteen, E.T. and The Godfather among others.

On the same floor you will meet Korea's greatest: King Sejong, Saimdang Shin (the first woman to appear in a Korean bank note), Admiral Sun Sin Yi, Yi Hwang and Yi I

Inventors such Einstein and Leonardo da Vinci and people who dedicated their life to peace and human rights such as Pope Francis, Ghandi and Nelson Mandela are also present.

The 3rd floor is composed by world leaders, athletes and artists. It is also where you will be able to land the presidential aeroplane after you scan you ticket and discover the magic behind the wax figures creation, the “Discovery Atelier”.

The “Discovery Atelier” is amazing. You will be able to see how those super detailed and life like figures were created. You can even follow the steps that were needed to create G-Dragon (Korea's music idol) wax figure to create your own 3D model throughout their activities. While there, you will learn that it takes months to create a wax figure, that they all have natural hair, eyes made of glass and that their teeth are created by a dental specialist. Some of the wax figures are dressed in clothes donated by their models from their own wardrobe.

On the 2nd floor you will find famous actresses, world renowned fashionistas and the Hall of Fame, which is also the main hall of Grevin Museum and where you will find Psy, G-Dragon, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Mike Jagger to name a few.

From then on you move to the recording studio where you will meet John Lennon, Luciano Pavarotti and Sumi Jo.

The visit ends on a K-Drama set titled “Hallyuwood”surrounded by some of the most famous Hallyu actors and actress like Lee Min Ho, Park Shin Hye and Hyun Bin.

If you have kids, do not worry. They will not be bored since they can interact with the wax figures and also participate in the activities. Mine loved the aeroplane simulator, the 3D creation of herself, to ride a bike alongside E.T., play a basketball game with Michael Jordan and try the quiz given by Steve Jobs and Einstein. Actually she loved everything. The problem was to leave the museum.

Grevin Museum is open all year round. Has a gift shop and a Cafe.

Its at walking distance from the City Hall if you are farther than that take the subway. The stop is Euljiro 1-ga, Exit 1 ( follow the sidewalk for about 3 minutes. The museum will be on your right side)

Make sure you take your camera with you ready for action. Once you get in you will become a happy trigger kind of photographer.

The tickets for this place was part of the Discover Seoul pass.
I thought that this place was just a wax museum and was pleasantly surprised when it was a bit more than that. Keep your entrance ticket handy since that's what you use to play the mini games inside. Like other wax museums, you can pose with the actors for photo ops. Some of the displays or areas had games like roulette and landing (or in my case crashing) a plane. I thought that made it more interesting.
Some of the wax statues were a bit hard to tell or unfamiliar but there were placards around so that you can figure out who you're looking at. Nice place to spend some time especially if you can recognise them all.
