Make the most out of your visit and combine your visit

Grévin Montréal is associated with other activities near the museum so that you can make the most out of your visit.

Place Ville Marie Observatory

Nestled in the heart of Montreal’s business district, on the 46th floor of an emblematic tower, Observatoire Place Ville Marie offers an breathtaking view of our metropolis and its main attractions.  Live a unique experience more than 185 meters above the ground. Its inspiring space, its 360° panoramic view, its incomparable oversized windows, its spacious terrace on the 44th floor that vibrates to the rhythm of Montreal’s 4 seasons and its central location makes Observatoire Place Ville Marie a must.  Enjoy a gourmet stop at les Enfants Terribles, the highest restaurant in Montréal!

McCord Museum package

McCord Museum celebrates the life of Montréal from yesterday to today; its past, its inhabitants and its customs. The intelligent and thought-provoking museum joins forces with Grévin to introduce seniors and young people to wax statues of characters from New France as well as other contemporary figures from here and elsewhere.

ATRIUM LE 1000

This unique indoor ice rink invites you to skate to the lively beat of the music all year long. A huge glass dome overlooks the surface and invites the sun’s rays inside while families, students and tourists discover and rediscover the joys of ice-skating.

AML cruises

Come aboard the Cavalier Maxim in the old port and enjoy an educational cruise discovering some secrets of the river and its wildlife through costumed guides. A DJ is available to turn the boat into a real dance floor for a more playful cruise.

In addition to benefiting from very advantageous special rates, you can simplify your reservations by dealing with only one point of contact.

Did you know?

Sculptor, moulder, makeup artist, costume designer...creating a wax character requires the work of more than 20 artists! Measurements, photos and videos are taken during the first appointment with the celebrity...no details are left to chance. When the figure is revealed six months later, the likeness is uncanny!

  • 500,000 strands of hair can be implanted on a head…one by one!
  • Every year, 100 kg of wax, 70 tubes of oil paint for makeup and 5 km of sewing thread is used to make characters.
