Insiders Guide to
Paris Museum Tours

Paris has the best museums in the world –
and we're not the only ones who think so.

Everyone thinks that Paris museums are the best. In fact, the most popular museums in Paris get 7 million visitors a year!

With that many people you can be certain that there are going to be signficant line-ups at the popular museums, no matter what time of year you go.

When you're in Paris for such a short time, you really don't want to spend all of your time in lines, do you?

Neither do we. That's why we recommend booking a tour at one or two of the most popular museums in Paris. There's nothing like the feeling of when your tour guide walks you past the ticket line-ups.

Your expert guide takes you to the best of each museum, and talks about the history of the art and artists. We think it's the best use of your museum Euros!
