From Michael Jackson to Elizabeth II, enjoy surprise encounters with 300 waxwork celebrities at this legendary 19th-century Parisian haunt.
The English have Madame Tussauds, and the French have Grévin. No introduction needed for its world-famous celebrities, old and new, sculpted in wax for eternity.
From Zidane to Louis XIV, Callas to Elton John, Einstein to Tony Parker, no fewer than 300 alarmingly lifelike statues are waiting to be met.
Relive some great moments in French history, such as Joan of Arc at the stake or the assassination of Henri IV, and retrace some of the most marking events of the 20th century (the first steps on the moon, the fall of the Berlin wall…)
But Grévin is also a treasure-trove of listed 1900s decors: a pocket-sized theatre “à l’italienne”, a grand marble staircase, the cupola and the baroque-style Hall of Columns with its guilt and mosaics.
But above all, discover the Hall of Mirrors! This magical place was completely renovated in 2005 and uses sound and light to dazzle visitors with its unique optical illusions. Special attractions for kids include a discovery trail, which reveals the secrets of the waxworks. Fun story-telling visits for 7-12 year-olds offer a voyage through history.
