The Eaton Centre welcomes the Grévin Museum in 2013

 

February 25, 2013 – As of April 19, 2013, international superstar and Québec sweetheart Céline Dion will appear in Las Vegas, Paris and Montréal simultaneously. Impossible, you say? Not when it comes to the incredible talent of Grévin, renowned wax figure makers since 1882! Montréal has been chosen by this famed Parisian museum as the site of its very first location outside of France.

Sure to become one of the city’s top attractions, the future Grévin Montréal Museum will be located on the fifth floor of the Montréal Eaton Centre on Sainte-Catherine Street—the biggest commercial artery in Canada, with pedestrian traffic of more than 28 million people annually. And with a price tag of an estimated $13 million, chances are this museum will be nothing less than spectacular.

Over 120 personalities who have made their mark on Canadian, Quebecois and French history will be on display. As such, the collection will feature hockey great Jean Beliveau, singer Robert Charlebois, astronaut Julie Payette and, of course, Céline Dion and René Angelil. You will also be able to shake hands with Montréal’s mayor as you walk by.

Given Montréal’s reputation for creativity, this unique project coupled with Grévin’s great expertise will surely make for a quite an experience. Don’t miss out on this astounding possibility of seeing celebrities with your own eyes – it may be the closest you ever get.
