The Paris Museum Pass can be an amazing deal, but it’s not always ideal for everyone’s trip. 

Advantages:

  • Can save time
  • Possibly saves money
  • Includes museums you might not normally visit

Disadvantages:

  • Can be overwhelming if you don’t have enough time
  • Can lose money

Cost

There are three options for the Paris Museum Pass

  • 2 days is 48 euro
  • 4 days is 62 euro
  • 6 days is 74 euro

The sites for the pass. I only wrote excerpts on museums and sites that I have been to and used the pass for.

There are also many benefits for the Paris Region the most popular one is for Chateaux de Versailles et de Trianon. The tickets are between 20 and 27 euro. This is my favorite place to visit when I go to Paris, read about taking a day trip to Versailles.

Personal Experience

The pass saved us time and money on our three day trip. We bought the two day pass and crammed way too many sites in. Financially, the pass will save you money if you have multiple things you want to see. We spent 48 euro on the pass and would have spent over 70 euro in the museums we visited. We skipped the line at Sainte-Chappelle, the Rodin Museum, and the Arc de Triomphe. The Rodin Museum was free, so a ticket wouldn’t have helped us here, but the Arc and Saint-Chapelle lines would have been skipped had we purchased a ticket ahead of time.

Next time we visit Paris, unless it is a longer trip, I will not be getting the Pass. It makes me want to do more than I have time for. I plan on buying tickets to the museums we want to visit in advance, essentially giving us the same skip the line benefit. Next time we go to Paris we won’t go to all of those places again. We will also spend more time and visit less museums. The only way I would buy it for our third trip to Paris is if we are there for a week and get the 6 day pass.

  1. That is awesome that there are so many museums available to visit on the pass, but it sounds like you need a longer visit in order to get a better “deal” out of it.

  2. I totally agree with you about the pass. Unless you’re staying for longer, or are crazy about museums, then it’s worth it. It makes you feel like you have to see them all!

  3. A few friends of mine are travelling to Paris next week so I am going to share this post with them, I am sure it will be extremely helpful for them to plan their trip and decide if they want to get the Paris Pass or not. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This is a good consideration. It does seem like it would be economical, but I agree it might add pressure to see more and hurry the pace. Good advice!
