Grevin Wax Museum to Open in Seoul

According to Yonhap News,

(SEOUL=Yonhap News) The Grevin Wax Museum will open its first Asia location in Seoul on July 29.


Seoul City announced July 16 that 300 people, including Seoul Mayor Park Won-soon and CDA Chairman Dominique Marcel, will attend the opening ceremony of the museum. CDA is the holding company of the Grevin Wax Museum.

The city expects the opening ceremony, to be attended by many famous Korean Wave celebrities, to revitalize the tourism market, which has been hit hard by an outbreak of the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome.

The Grevin Wax Museum was first opened in 1882 in France as a museum that displays wax sculptures. The museum’s Seoul location is its fourth globally, following those in France, Canada and the Czech Republic.

The wax museum (total floor area: 4,400㎡) will exhibit a total of 80 wax sculptures of celebrities and historic figures from Korea and abroad, including John Lennon, Marilyn Monroe, Tom Cruise, Psy, Yuna Kim, Sejong the Great and Admiral Yi Sun-sin.

Grevin Korea, a joint venture between Korea and France, led the establishment of the museum, in which foreigners invested KRW 19 billion (USD 16.47 million).

Hours: 10 am - 6 pm

Admission: Adults KRW 23,000 / Teenagers KRW 18,000 / Children KRW 15,000
