France is world famous for its museums and the French state invests heavily in them. Visiting museums and galleries is a very popular pastime and the French population is typically rather more versed in the Humanities than those in many other countries. Of course, most of the major globally-known museums, such as the Louvre and the Orsay are in Paris along with dozens of others. Not all are high-brow though and you can also explore the mediaeval crypts of Notre Dame or the Museum of Cinema. Outside the capital, most of the major cities will also have several museums and even the smaller towns will usually have their own too. Entry to museums is sometimes free or in other cases a typically modest charge is made. In Paris, queuing for entry to some of the major museums is commonplace at the height of the tourist season though the Withlocals tours will ensure you know when to go to avoid some of those and get the best deal tickets. In Paris and some other cities, the security searching of hand luggage is now commonplace and it may be a mandatory requirement to check-in and deposit larger items such as rucksacks.
