Museums in Paris
It will come as no surprise to know that Paris is perhaps the best city in the world for museums – or certainly one of the best! They’re quite simply everywhere and they cater to all tastes and interests. Visiting museums is one of the best things to do in Paris. Typically French people are brought up to respect and understand ‘high culture’ and that’s represented by how many visit museums and galleries. Contrary to expectation, not all museums are pretentious or stuffy. There is, for example, one dedicated to the history of the cinema and another to mediaeval life. Points worth noting though are that some of the top Paris museums, notably the Louvre, can be very busy and controlled access to some of the top exhibits may be in place at peak demand times. Expect your baggage to be searched and you may be required to leave larger cases and bags at reception. There are multi-site tickets available which are great value and your Withlocals tour guide will be able to help you secure those.
