How to Use the Pass?
How to use the Paris Museum Pass
To be able to use the Paris Museum Pass, you’ll have to write the date on the back of the card as well as your full name.
We recommend using this card in the morning so you have the whole day to make the most of it. The days have to be consecutive.
To enter the various attractions, you won’t have to queue or go to the ticket office. All you have to do is go directly to the person who collects the admission tickets and show them the tourist card. The only places where you'll have to queue are the Towers of Notre Dame Cathedral and Sainte Chapelle.
There are three different types of Paris Museum Pass:
- 2 days: € 52 (US$ 55.50)
- 4 days: € 66 (US$ 70.50)
- 6 days: € 78 (US$ 83.30)
Is the Paris Pass Worthwhile?
Unless you’re not planning to visit any of the city’s top attractions, the Paris Museum Pass is usually worthwhile, especially if you’re staying in Paris for a long stay. If you get the 6-day pass, it comes to a total of € 12.30 (US$ 13.10) per day, so you'll be saving money if you visit two monuments or museums a day.
With this pass travellers will not only save money but will also save time thanks to the fast track access, skipping lines that are sometimes over one-hour long.
Keep in mind that those under 18 years old do not have to pay for tickets to most of the city’s top attractions so they won’t need to buy a Pass. EU citizens who are under 26 can also visit many of the monuments and museums for free in Paris.
