Paris Travel Planner   Paris Museum Pass, Paris, France
Want to save money and time and see some of the world's best art? Take advantage of the Paris Museum Pass, which admits you to wonderful museums and monuments.

 









 

The Paris Museum Pass is a great way to save both money and time. Offering admission to more than 40 museums and monuments in Paris, and another 20 in the Paris region, the Paris Museum Pass is a wonderful convenience.

You can buy a Paris Museum Pass for two, four, or six days. To make it pay for itself, you'll want to go to two or three museums or monuments each day.

As important as saving money is the convenience. Some museums have a separate entrance for Paris Museum Pass holders. Others allow you to coupe file or cut in line, bypassing the ticket counter. More...

I once used a two-day Paris Museum Pass to visit the Louvre, the Orangerie, the Pompidou, the Guimet, and a couple other smaller museums. I even went to the Louvre two days in a row, since there's so much to see and I needed time to absorb it all.

Museums & More...

The Paris Museum Pass also covers a number of important monuments: the Arc de Triomphe, the Panthéon, the Towers of Notre Dame, and the Sainte-Chapelle are among those that accept the Pass. You can even use it to visit the Paris sewer system at the Musée des Égouts de Paris!

The Pass also covers about 20 museums/monuments outside of the city. The best known are the Château de Versailles, the Château de Fontainebleau, and the Château de Vincennes. Versailles and Fontainebleau are both day trips, so you'll need to decide if you want to spend one of your Paris Museum Pass days on an excursion or concentrate on seeing more museums in Paris.

Unfortunately, the Paris Museum Pass does not work at Disneyland Paris, but Ceetiz sells a special 1 Day, 2 Parks ticket which gets you into both Disneyland Paris and Walt Disney Studios.

How to Buy the Pass

So how do you buy the Paris Museum Pass? The easiest way is to buy it at any of the participating museums/monuments (choose one of the smaller, less crowded ones to save time. I got mine at the Delacroix Museum). It's also available at outlets at Charles DeGaulle Airport, at FNAC stores, or on-line, and from Ceetiz (pick it up in Paris).

In some places you still have to wait in line (and you have to go through security lines at many museums, which can take time). But the Paris Museum Pass can help you spend less time waiting and more time enjoying the wonderful treasures of many of Paris's top museums.

Even More? The Paris Pass!

Also consider the even bigger Paris Pass, which admits you to 60+ museums and attractions, the Métro and city buses, Seine River cruises, hop-on hop-off tour buses, and gets you discounts at many shops and restaurants. More...
