Paris is an art lovers haven. With so many museums and monuments, it can take years to explore them all in detail.

The price for each museum varies depending on what they have to offer. Temporary exhibitions normally cost more to view. The fees were correct at the time of writing or updating the site.
One popular way to visit museums in Paris is to purchase what is known as the Paris Museum Pass. Paris Museum Pass gives you access to over 70 museums and monuments for the duration of your pass. However, once used, it has to be used in consecutive days.
