The Musée Grévin is a wax museum in Paris located on the Grands Boulevards in the 9th arrondissement on the right bank of the Seine. The museum was founded in 1882 by Arthur Meyer, a journalist for Le Gaulois, and named for its first artistic director, caricaturist Alfred Grévin. It is one of the oldest wax museums in Europe. The Museum Grévin now contains some 200 characters arranged in scenes from the history of France and modern life, including a panorama of French history from Charlemagne to Napoleon III, the French Revolution, movie stars, and international figures such as Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, Shah Rukh Khan, and Pope John Paul II. I recently visited the museum and it is quite of site I might say.
