Musée Grévin in a Nutshell

Fifty years after the opening of the Madame Tussauds museum in London, the famous Paris museum, Musée Grévin, opened its doors for the first time on the Grands Boulevards in 1882. Since its inception, more than 2,000 famous individuals have been exhibited here. Visitors can encounter Gandhi, Albert Einstein, General de Gaulle, as well as Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. The idea of showcasing these personalities to the public was conceived by a journalist named Arthur Meyer. During that time, there were few photographs of celebrities, and people struggled to associate an image with their faces. Arthur Meyer enlisted the help of Alfred Grévin, a renowned painter and sculptor of that era, to craft wax figures.

At the time of its inauguration, the public showed immense enthusiasm for these ultra-realistic wax statues of world-renowned figures. In 1900, the museum expanded to include a theater combining wax figures, play of lights, and mirrors. This hall of illusions continues to captivate both young and old visitors today.

Musée Grévin features scenes from French history, such as the assassination of Marat during the French Revolution, and a reenactment of the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre on August 24, 1572. However, it's not just French history that takes center stage in this museum. Every year, four French or international personalities make their entrance, including writers, actors, athletes, and cultural icons. Of course, political figures are also exhibited.

Did You Know?

It's not easy to have your wax figure displayed at Musée Grévin. After a rigorous selection process by a jury that convenes twice a year, one must still go through measurements and nearly 600 photos will be required for the most faithful reproduction of one's likeness. Each strand of hair is individually implanted on the wax skull. For even greater realism, hands are cast in plaster to capture even the tiniest protruding veins!

Tornata dopo anni al Museo Grevin, questa volta anche con i miei nipoti, sono rimasta entusiasta di come, non solo il Museo abbia mantenuto il suo fascino ma, anzi, si é superato. I nuovi "personaggi" inseriti in ambientazioni fantastiche sono ancora più perfetti e lasciano di stucco il visitatore. Più che soddisfatta della visita.
