Escape through the mists of time at the Musée Grévin. The museum was opened in the late 19th century with the aim of publicising important figures to the general public. Over time, the faces of celebrities, sportsmen and women, comic book heroes and historical figures have been added to the collection of wax sculptures.
Just yards from the Opéra hotel are Paris’ oldest music halls. The Olympia was founded in 1893. French musical legend Mistinguett trod its boards, but countless other singers and musicians from Edith Piaf to the Beatles have also appeared in this famous hall. The Folies Bergère has been a successful venue since 1869 thanks to its musical performances. At the invitation of Paul Derval, Josephine Baker appeared at the Folies.
