2.4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web
Founded in 1882, Musee Grevin is one of the oldest waxwork museums. The museum was founded by Arthur Meyer, a journalist for Le Gaulois, and was named after its first artistic director, caricaturist Alfred Grévin. Its baroque architecture includes a hall of mirrors based on the principle of a catoptric cistula and a theater for magic shows. The museum contains about 450 characters arranged in scenes from the history of France and modern life. This includes a panorama of French history from Charlemagne to Napoleon III, bloody scenes of the French Revolution, movie stars, and international figures such as Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, and Pope John Paul II.

  • I visited the wax museum in Paris after visiting the Palace of Versailles, on the same day. The comparison, even though it is completely meaningless, have in common the price of tickets, $ 25 euros. The wax figures, until they are well done, but the visit should cost $ 10 euros at most. You get the feeling that fell into a tourist trap.

  • This museum is not at all on the new rochelle. Confirmed by the office of tourism of the new rochelle. The Grévin Museum is on paris but in no case on the new rochelle

  • Most of the present opinions here are Museum Grévin in Paris and not that of La Rochelle, who has apparently closed a couple of years ago! I looked, there is now a restaurant (South) instead.
