This kitsch version of Madame Tussauds is a hit with kids, who can have their photo taken alongside waxworks of showbiz stars and personalities like football star Zinédine Zidane, Brad Pitt, George Clooney, the Queen and Barack Obama.
Great historical moments, such as Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, are re-created in the 'snapshots of the 20th century' area. A small gallery at the top of a spiral staircase near the end shows how waxworks are made, and an impressive hall of mirrors (designed by France's fetish illusionist Arturo Brachetti and with music by Manu Katche) plunges you into scenes such as an Aztec temple.
On Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays during term time there are special children's guided tours (French only) for seven- to 12-year-olds (€15).
