Trip Report Kerouac visits the Grévin wax museum of Paris

Jump to last reply

It was time for me to see a real tourist sight, the sort of thing that I usually avoid. But the Musée Grévin is not on the "A" list of most visitors, at least not the ones from North America, so I think it qualifies as being off the beaten track here. Therefore I only recommend it to people who have already seen the main sights of the city.

Even though Madame Tussaud's in London opened long before the Musée Grévin, it shouldn't be forgotten that Marie Tussaud was a French entrepreneur who chose to move to London because the French revolution was getting a little out of hand. She had made death masks of Robespierre, Marat and the heads of the king and queen, so it was probably a good idea to get out of the country. Anyway, Madame Tussaud's opened in 1835 whereas the Musée Grévin didn't open until 1882, but various other wax museums had opened and closed in Paris over the years.

I have been to both places, and they are really different experiences in my opinion, so if you have been to Madame Tussaud's, I would not say that there is no point in going to the Musée Grévin. In fact, it is probably interesting from a sociological standpoint to see how some of the same celebrities are treated in both places.

Obviously I made a photo report of my visit, and here it is: http://tinyurl.com/grevin2014
