Things to See in Paris - Monuments and Landmarks

Guest Author - Teresa Szefler

Paris is home to countless monuments, landmarks and historical sites.

Purchasing the museum and monument pass (valid for one, three or five consecutive days) allows you to skip the lines and gives you unlimited access to dozens of museums and monuments in and around Paris. The pass is available at participating museums and monuments, at metro stations, at the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau and in FNAC stores.

Paris museums are generally open from 9 or 10am until 5 or 6pm, but some open later and close at 8 or 9pm. Most museums are closed on Monday or Tuesday, but some are open 7 days a week and some are open very late. Check the appropriate websites listed below for current information.
