Paris: Museums and Galleries
The first thing you need to know about Paris Museums and Galleries is where to buy a Paris Museum Pass. This is indispensible unless you have a liking for queues.
This pass (formerly the Carte Musées et Monuments) offers free access (without waiting) and unlimited visits to the permanent collections of over 60 museums and monuments, including the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, and the Arc de Triomphe.
The new pass is offered in 2-day (39€), 4-days (54€), and 6-day (69€) versions. It’s sold at all of the participating museums and monuments, the Paris tourism office, the Espace de Tourisme Ile de France, and FNAC stores. It does not cover transportation (but see Paris Pass below), but is an excellent buy if you have a few days in Paris. There’s no use-by date, so you can buy it in advance and it won’t start running till your first visit.
