This museum was created on the initiative of Arthur Meyer in 1882, almost 50 years after the Tussaud Museum in London, opened by a Strasbourg woman married to an Englishman. This type of museum responded to a real need of the public who wanted to be able to identify the characters of the news, at a time when photography was not yet used in the press. Alfred Grévin, cartoonist, designer of theater costumes and sculptor, seemed to be the ideal person to give shape to the characters.
