I wouldn't have gone there if I hadn't received free tickets as I'd heard that it has "too French" for foreigners. After having lived here for 4 years, I did fine. I liked the part where they explained how all the statues were made; however, the general atmosphere was a bit dusty and old. So, all in all, it was... More

This was my second time at the Grevin, this time with my youngest son of 14. It's wonderful! From the opulent decor as you enter into the unusual Mirage to the clever and life like wax figures- some of whom are spookily realistic. The layout is clever and includes a kitchen full of world famous chefs, a theatre dressing room... More

I liked how the wax figures were made but they were really less and didn't deserve 24.5 euros .... Not disappointed though

The museum is nice, and you will enjoy the art of wax sculpturing .. it is a nice indoor activity if you have extra time... this activity doesn't require lots of efforts if you tired. I knew about it from the paris pass i had

First point - buy a Paris pass - so worth it. This was close to home and a visit because it was included- we enjoyed it immensely

I thought the Musee Grevin will be same as the Madame Tussaud's in UK but I was over estimating it. It's small and has few celebrities only. Not recommended to visit.

Not bad but Madame Tussauds is much better. Hall of mirrors is the best attraction in Musee Grevin. Few wax figures were not good but this museum has good collections of French celebrities. If you book any Bus tour like L'open Bus tour, you can find booklet with 25% ticket discount coupon for Musee Grevin. Morning hours are calm and... More

I took my 4 year old while Mummy was shopping, and we loved it. The original mirage show from 1909 with lights, sound and mirrors was amazing, and the waxworks were very authentic and highly interactive for photography. Focuses on French characters obviously, so we didn't know who many 'celebs' were, but tons you can recognize and sit at a... More

The French miniversion of Madamme Tussauds. We missed a few more celeberties which is why we thought it was a bit to expencive, even after our international-student discount. We had a nice visit and the beginning began with a 10 minute lightshow in a mirrorroom.
