The Grévin Waxwork Museum was built in 1882 thanks to Arthur Meyer and was intended to represent the celebrities featured in the contemporary newspapers.
The museum was named Grévin as it was the cartoonist, sculptor and costume designer Albert Grévin who created the first celebrity waxworks. The museum was completed during the ‘Exposition Universelle’ in 1900 with the creation of the Hall of Mirrors and the Grévin Theatre whose stage curtain is a Jules Chéret canvas. It was then transformed in 2001 with the arrival of 300 waxwork figures!
France’s history can be discovered through the museum’s 500 waxwork celebrities.
