The Musée Grévin is a waxwork museum in Paris, located on the Grands Boulevards in the 9th arrondissement, on the right bank of the Seine at 10, Boulevard Montmartre, Paris; it was founded in 1882 by Arthur Meyer journalist for Le Gaulois, 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 catoptrics cistula and a theater for magic shows. The hall of mirrors was originally built for the Exposition Universelle in 1900.

The Musée Grévin now contains some 450 characters arranged in scenes from the history of France and modern life, including a panorama of French history from Charlemagne to Napoleon, bloody scenes of the French Revolution, movie stars, and international figures such as Albert Einstein, Mahatma Gandhi, and Pope John Paul II. The tableau of Charlotte Corday murdering Jean-Paul Marat includes the actual knife and Bathtub used.

New wax characters are regularly added to the Museum.
