The Grevin Wax Museum invites you to experience the spirit of Paris of yesterday and of today, through astounding scenes and more than 200 wax figures.
Paris was a busy place in the 19th century, and the public wanted to know everything that was going on. Journalist Arthur Meyer (1844-1917) came up with the idea of creating life-size, three-dimensional models of the people who made the headlines in the famous daily paper "Le Gaulois". Meyer's idea was simple: to create a place where the public could walk through a setting peopled with wax figures. It was an instant success!Discover a completely renovated Grevin Wax Museum.
