The museum was founded in 1882 by Arthur Meyer, a journalist for Le Gaulois, on the model of Madame Tussauds founded in London in 1835 and named for its first artistic director, caricaturist Alfred Grévin. It is one of the oldest wax museums in Europe."
28Bateaux Mouches
"Bateaux Mouches are open excursion boats that provide Paris visitors with a unique view of the city from the Seine river. "Bateaux Mouches" translates literally as "fly boats" ("fly" meaning the insect). These boats are popular tourist attractions in Paris. They started with steamers at an Exhibition in 1867. Since the Seine is centrally located in Paris, a boat tour covers a great deal of the city. Both the Left Bank ("Rive Gauche") and the Right Bank ("Rive Droite") are visible from the boat. Passengers can see, among other sites, the Eiffel Tower; Notre-Dame Cathedral; the Alexander III Bridge, the Pont Neuf; the Orsay Museum, the Louvre Museum, as well as Les Invalides, Napoleon's burial site."
