The Discovery Tour

One of our many exhibits will let you to take a close look at the Grévin workshops where you’ll learn all the secrets of the trade as we reveal the different steps we take in creating a wax figure. And once you’re in the know you can make a statue of yourself by scanning your face using one of our special multimedia devices. Grévin Montreal is the place to go for a one-of-a-kind experience that will stimulate all your senses.

Did you know?

The creation of a waxwork involves over fifteen different artists: sculptors, casters, make-up specialists, costume designers...

The first appointment with the celebrity is for measurements, photos, and videos so that nothing is left to chance. Six months to eight months later, on the day of final reckoning, when the statue is introduced to the public, the likeness must be uncanny.

  • As many as 500,000 may be needed for one head.
  • Every year the workshop uses 100kg of wax, 70 tubes of oil paint for make-up and 5km of sewing thread!
