Choosing which of the world reknowned Paris museums to visit on a weekend break to Paris can be tricky, however with the Paris Museum Pass you can get unlimited access to over 60 of Paris' best museums and monuments, and beat the queues*!
Benefits of your Pass
Choose a 2, 4 or 6 day Pass depending on how long you intend to visit museums. The Paris Museum Pass is valid for consecutive days from the date you write on the card (Before your first visit, preferably in the morning to take full advantage of the first day, jot down your surname, first name and the day's date on the back of your pass (no deletions or alterations): your pass will then be activated for 2, 4 or 6 consecutive days).
The Pass gives you access to over 50 museums, monuments and galleries in Paris to visit (unlimited number of visits) including the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, Musée Rodin, the Arc de Triomphe, the crypte and tower of Notre Dame etc. also includes the permanent collections, and also gives you skip the line access to most of the museums*.
*Skip the line is not guaranteed when there are security checks in place or limited regulated access for security reasons

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.
- Writing the date of your first visit on the back of the pass activates the pass for the entire duration (2, 4 or 6 consecutive days). We advise you not to write any dates until you are sure about your starting date.
- We also recommend activating your pass in the morning of the first day in order to make the most of your day.
- Last, please remember to organize your touring schedule according to the opening days and holidays of the museums and monuments. And don’t forget some sites are open evenings!
