The history of Grévin Montréal

Grévin Montréal is evidence of the long-standing friendship between France and Quebec. It is naturally part of the French culture's expansion and development on the international scene.

Located on the 5th floor of Montreal's Eaton Centre, in the heart of Sainte-Catherine Street, Canada's largest commercial artery, the museum is part and parcel of the downtown's vitality. By selecting Montréal as the first location for international development, Grévin has become an essential part of the city's thriving cultural fabric.

In order to properly capture the quintessence of entertainment, Franco-Québec teams, recognized in their field of expertise, staged the museum. Dick Walsh and Julien Bertevas (CDA Production), Moment Factory, Patrice Peyrieras, Pinxi, Dushow, Europea and many others helped design this entertainment hot spot.

These multiple collaborations underline Grévin Montréal's desire to unite Franco-Quebec know-how and expertise to create a truly unique place and provide a quality offering. A variety of original atmospheres and settings, with interactive and sensory experiences, feature 125 celebrities—the stars of local and international news or events—who bring a theatre of unlikely encounters to life.

The grand opening took place on April 17, 2013.
