The Paris museum pass gets you free entry to more than 50 museums and monuments throughout Paris. But don’t worry about running like crazy to get to all 50 in one day, you can get the pass for consecutive days. Take your pick of 2, 4 or 6 days! Great right? Right! Another bonus to the Paris museum pass is that it gets you an unlimited number of visits to the museums and monuments so if you take a particular liking to the beautiful artwork at the Arc de Triomphe or enjoy the tour de Notre-Dame on your first day, you can go again later in your trip! So let's take a look at the ticket itself, how much it costs, what you get with it and if it's worth it for you.
As with any purchase, you can’t simply hand over your money and hope for the best. So let’s take a look at what the pass offers see if it’s worth it for you when visiting Paris.
I’m not sure if this section should be the ‘best thing about’ or ‘my favorite thing about’ because one of my favorite things about the pass is that you skip the lines. When you have a limited time for a holiday, reducing the 30 minutes to an hour waiting time in a queue means you get straight in to see what you’re here for and leaves you with time that would otherwise be wasted. Meaning you can really take your time to see everything and don’t rush in, take a photo, walk around and run to the next monument or museum.
As part of whether the pass is ‘worth it or not’ we need to know what is included. Now, we can’t list everything because there are just too many so we’ll just a list a few highlights for you:
That looks pretty good already doesn’t it? There is a lot more on offer in terms of access to museums and monuments in and around Paris.
So now we which attractions we can see in Paris, what else is on offer?
Personalization of your trip!
As we mentioned briefly earlier, with the Paris museum pass you can personalize your trip to include certain activities and not others. This is great in the case that you’ve seen some places before, have no interest or are on a budget.
The other interesting part of the personalization of your trip around Paris is that you can choose for how long you want access to these places.
I want to answer two questions you may have:
In our investigation for this article, we’ve found some sites that claim to offer discounts to the Paris museum pass but are yet to find one that is reliable. The ones we’ve found ask you to click and enter your information but then say the coupon has expired. So we will update this post when we find something for you!
You’ve picked your ticket. Now what do you have to do?
Once you’ve selected the ticket that suits your needs and desires you can expect a few things. You can pick it up in Paris via courier or have it delivered to your home (for a fee). To avoid this cost (which can be between €12 and €24) you can simply pick the tickets up at the central Paris Tourist Office.
Now you have the tickets in hand! Is there anything else you need to do? Just a few more things to make sure you’re 100% but I've got you covered. The only things you need to do is fill out your name, surname and the date of your visit. That’s it! You're ready!
*Tip: please remember this one
You should wait to write the date of your visit until you’re there, the company don’t provide exchanges or refunds for any reason. So if you change your itinerary or get delayed or any other problem, the company won’t accept the ticket outside of the date you wrote on the pass!
