The French Museum of Wax Figures - Grevin opened its branch in Celetna Street in May 2014. However, after four years, the company terminated its operations due to the loss of clients.

"In its four years of activity, it has achieved excellent rankings on all websites. Nevertheless, despite year-on-year increases in visitor numbers and improved financial results, this prolific project did not achieve a balanced budget due to its high operating costs,” the museum stated on its website.

Despite the improving results of last year's fiscal year, the Paris headquarters decided to terminate the operations of the Grévin Museum, effective from today.

This fascinating museum near Staroměstské náměstí featured figurines of icons from show business, sports and politics. Visitors could meet with the statues of prominent personalities of Czech history: Charles IV, Rudolf II, Václav Havel, Miloš Forman and Karel Gott among others.

At the end of the tour, spectators could create a personalized wax dummy on the screen and have it sent to their email. But not anymore.

Already purchased tickets can be returned to the museum through the end of March.

There is another Wax Museum in Celetna Street: the Madame Tussauds Prague which is open daily from 10 am to 9 pm. As for the Grevin Museum franchise, you may enjoy the operational ones in Paris, Montreal or Seoul.
