Musée Grévin Paris. My boyfriend treated me to a visit to the Grévin museum. It is similar to Madame Tussauds, and it contains loads of wax statutes. 

The quality of the sculptures is impressive. But others were less detailed and it failed a bit in the experience. Even though the positioning and setting was absolutely amazing. The rooms are beautiful and the Grévin crew makes lots of efforts to make your best experience possible. Which means that when a room is over crowded they block the entrance for a couple minutes in order to gave to the space to observe the statues as best as you can.

To be fair the visit took about 1,5 – 2 hours while moving quite fast. The line with a pre-bought ticket the line was about 40 minutes of waiting. Being honest it was a French holiday and it was, in general, more crowded in the city than on normal weekends.

Musée Grévin Paris, once inside you can expect a show.

Once inside you can expect a show. Which helps to give the crowd more time to divide within the chambers. This room is not my favourite, it looks outdated and the show took relatively long.

As soon as we left the first room, the experience was definitely better. It was calm and peaceful. In general, I must say it was a very pleasant experience and changed completely my image of the wax statues museums. The chambers where absolutely beautifully decorated. Most (French) heroes you will find represented. Even when you are not French you might know them and also a lot of international famous personalities are present. 

You can buy your tickets over here! It is definitely worth it to buy your ticket on before visiting. This helps you to get in faster. If not you need to do the line to get the ticket and then the line to get inside. My suggestion is to go during the week. During the week the line is much shorter and I think it will be more pleasant for your visit. If you choose to go on the weekend, make sure that it is not a national day in France.

Have you already visited Musée Grévin Paris? How was your experience? Are you thinking about going? Which is your favourite wax museum? Leave it all in the comments I would love to hear about it.
