Free cultural outings to museums
Access to most Parisian museums is not free (the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay). The prices are quite high (16 euros for the Orsay museum, 17 euros for the Louvre). However, some of them are free on the first Sunday of the month (the Pompidou center, the Orsay museum). Expect long lines on those days. There are also some museums that are free every day of the year. Be careful, we are talking about access to the permanent collections (90% of the museum), the free museums also organize temporary exhibitions for which access is not free. Don't be mistaken when you order the ticket, there is clearly a will to force the sale of paying entries with really unclear interfaces.
Here is our selection of some Parisian museums that are free all year long.
