Free museums in Paris

Visiting museums in Paris doesn’t have to empty your wallet. Most national museums in Paris (including the Louvre) , for instance, offer free entrance for their permanent exhibitions on the 1st Sunday of each month. There are even quite a few other museums whose permanent exhibitions are free to visit every day.
A detailed list and printable map of both kind of museums is available on www.patroc.com/paris/free-museums.html.

In London all museums are free entry, this means you don’t have to pay to see the galleries but exhibitions that are special or only on for a couple of months will have a charge and it can be quite high as they need to make some money somehow (£10-£15 per person).

Note that this may mean long lines and crowded exhibits. Try to get there earlier.

I know the current President just passed a law making a lot of museums in France free for those under 25. I don’t know the specific dates/times though. I believe it’s in the evening on like thursdays and fridays.

When I went in France, I got in free in all museums and other sites (catacombs, Versailles …) because I was an art history student.

If you study in a field close to letters and history take you student id with you.

There are even quite a few other museums whose permanent exhibitions are free to visit every day, that’s way most peoples like this museum and I will also go to Paris for visit this museum.
