Paris has over 130 museums covering all kinds of things, and unlike other cities in the world, they all charge an entry fee for adults. This is where the Paris Museum Pass is so useful. With over 50 of Paris’ best museums and monuments included, you can visit as many or as few as you like.

The pass includes museums and monuments such as the Louvre*, Musée d’Orsay, Pompidou Centre, Palace of Versailles and Rodin Museum, and gives you fast track entrance so you can skip the queues (although if the museum operates a system that requires a free ticket, or if the museum has security checks in place, this can’t always be guaranteed).

*NB: New time slot booking procedure for the Louvre – please see the Useful Information section for details.

Unfortunately Notre Dame cathedral crypt and tower, which was included in the pass, is closed until further notice due to the fire in April 2019.

The passes come in 2, 4 or 6 day so you can choose the one that best suits your trip. You also get a large leaflet showing all the museums and monuments included, which details the opening times, locations and how to get to them, which can also be found under the downloads tab.

Children up to and including 18yrs of age can get into most Paris museums for free, and if they are EU citizens, it’s free up to the age of 26.

Paris museum passes' validity is calculated from the time of the first visit. So a 2 day pass will be valid for 48 hours, a 4 day pass for 96 hours and a 6 day pass for 144 hours from your first entry. Each passes allow a single admission to each of the listed sites.

Please note that the Paris Museum Pass doesn't include access to temporary exhibitions or conference visits.

Most museums and monuments are free of charge for children under 18 and EU residents under 26 (to claim their free entry EU citizens will need to queue up at each museum and show their passport at the ticket desk. Children under 18 accompanied by an adult holding a Paris Museum Pass can go to the fast track entry with the adult. Some museums are free for all children under the age of 18. Check our list of museums to ascertain if the specific museums you wish to visit are free for children under 18). Museums and monuments are usually closed on Monday or Tuesday, 1st January and 1st May.

The 'queue-cutter' aspect of the pass cannot always be guaranteed in certain sites operating an access system that requires the production of a free ticket or when there are security checks in place or limited regulated access for security reasons.

Please remember to organise your touring schedule according to the opening days and holidays of the museums and monuments. And don’t forget some sites are open in the evenings!

Essential companion!

It was great to avoid all the queues at the museums!

A must have before you leave home!

Have it delivered to your house and use immediately when you get to Paris. Always send someone from your party to walk up to the front of any line and show the pass to find out whether you can jump both the security line and the ticket line. They seem genuinely pleased that you have to Museum Pass. At the Arc de Triomphe we walked past a 100 yard ticket line and then were escorted off the long security line to our own entrance. At the Louvre you actually have your own special entryway (specified in the pass) for instant access. I bought the card for my 13 year old despite many sites being free for kids because I got the impression that you would still have to stand on ticket lines to get them a free ticket, they can't just walk straight in with you.


Well worth it

Really useful. We went to the Louvre, D'Orsay, Versailles and Musee de Cluny (fantastic) as well as the Notre Dame towers and the crypt. Made things so easy.

Museum Passes

Great to have these passes in advance. Please note that students and young people under 25 can get into most of these attractions for free but they have to queue up regardless so we even bought the passes for our young adults. Well worth it for Louvre in itself but useful for other attractions as well.

Highly recommended

Very glad we purchased these, we more than got our money's worth from the attractions we visited. Useful to skip the very long line for tickets to get into the Louvre. Same couldn't be said for Versailles though, the pass is valid for entry but by the time we got there (mid-morning), the queue of ticket holders was huge. If you want to use this pass for Versailles, get there early.
