Paris’ 9th arrondissement has many original and entertaining museums with very specific themes. What makes the difference with the other museums of Paris? Their architecture!
The “Musée de la vie romantique” is dedicated to the Romanticism artistic era. More than a museum, it’s a beautiful story impregnating the premises which makes all the difference and turns the former Ary Scheffer’s house into a must-see of the 9th arrondissement.
Some people also spend the afternoon enjoying a cup of tea surrounded by the garden’s colorful scenery. Romantic, indeed.
The Musée Grévin gathers the celebrities’ wax statues in this original museum inaugurated in 1882. The idea came from a french journalist, Arthur Meyer, who really wanted its readers to identify the faces of the people he was talking about in his paper. Nowadays, it’s a famous attraction where people can “meet” celebrities from all around the world.
