After hearing great reviews from my peeps in Paris, we decided to pay a visit to the Musée Grévin. This stunning museum is a delight for people of all age groups and fans of every category and celebrity.

Both D and I never really loved the concept of wax museums but this unique and magnificent museum is something else.

The interiors were so grand that our jaws just dropped as soon as we entered the main hall where all the introductions happen.

The visit at the museum begin with a stunning 3D show. It was a spooky and interesting dark room with beautiful graphics and neon lights on the ceiling with haunting music to scare you.

Being music lovers, we tend to tilt more towards the artists in the music industry. 

More than 200 celebrities in the Grévin Museum, we spent almost two hours posing next to Lady Gaga, performing dance sequences with Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.

The museum was founded in 1882 by Arthur Meyer, a journalist for Le Gaulois, on the model of Madame Tussauds founded in London in 1835 and named for its first artistic director, caricaturist Alfred Grévin.

It is one of the oldest wax museums in Europe. Its baroque architecture includes a hall of mirrors based on the principle of a catoptric cistula and a theater for magic shows.

The hall of mirrors was built for the Exposition Universelle in 1900. It was originally housed in Le Palais des Mirages designed by Eugène Hénard.

I would definitely recommend visiting the Grévin Café which is a quintessential Parisian Café right on the main street which a lovely view. We ordered for some delicious French wine and enjoyed our people watching.

The Grévin museum is situated on Montmartre Blvd, and it's accessible from the metro station Grands Boulevards.
