  • It is an unusual Museum where you can meet the characters of the past or the present. The light is great to photograph them.

  • It was a good surprise again! I picked to visit this wax museum just because there was a 'bundle ticket' (available online) for Cineaqua and Musée Grévin with a rather attractive discount, and the young one on the journey with us had so determined to visit the Aquarium, like in many other cities. So, it sounds like an 'add-on', right? But then we were thrilled, not once, but many times throughout the visit. It was nice to get to know a little more about French history, in a more leisurely, less conventional and boring way. Even the youngest one in our group enjoyed it so much and absorbed quite a lot about French history that way! There was even a big Little Prince statue which was such a highlight for me! There were also many superstars, posed in different scenes for us to photo with. It was a mix of French and international figures, so no one shall get bored. Unfortunately, due to the Metro delay, we had only nearly two hours to visit this museum, which was far from enough! I would love to take more photos, read more about the production of all those amazing wax statues in details, etc. So, I may visit it again next time! 😉
  • It is good in terms of attractions, but nothing really different from other wax museums. A lot of celebrities and many important historical French names. The location also is nice, close to restaurants, etc. The downside is for the building, that is not prepared at all for handicapped neither parents with small children (0-2). Also the illumination is very poor to take pictures.
  • Beautiful wax museum in the center of Paris. Suitable for families and all age groups. Highly recommended!
  • Great place! Would be 5 stars if only some celebrities were more accurate, you have a lot of French famous people from centuries and from the present aside from that the Grévin is a visit you will enjoy at all :) you even have The Voice chairs and scenario to take a couple of funny and great pictures. Lots of places to eat nearby!
  • Must visit The Musée Grévin now contains some 450 characters arranged in scenes from the history of France and modern life, including a panorama of bloody scenes of the French revolution movie stars, and international figures such as Albert Einstein Obama, Jackie Chen, and many TV and film stars. The tableau of Charlotte Corday murdering Jean Paul Marat includes the actual knife and bathtub used. New wax characters are regularly added to the Museum.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
