Paris Museum Pass

The Paris Museum Pass is your skip-the-line all-pass for Paris’s museums and attractions

The Paris Museum Pass, often referred to as PMP, is an all-included tourist card that gives you free access to more than 50 of Paris’ most important monuments, sights, and museums. Once you get the Museum Pass you won’t even have to queue to get in: you’ll just present your pass at the entrance as you would a normal ticket.

As with many of these types of cards, the longer duration option you choose, the more you’re going to save in the long run.

Getting the pass in person is possible but not recommended, since there often are lines at the selling points. Instead, we recommend you [get it online here]( and save yourself the hassle of queueing at an office. The complete list of establishments included in the Paris Museum Pass is always on the PMP website.

Duration options

The pass comes in three duration options: 48 hours (2 days), 96 hours (4 days), and 144 hours (6 days). The pass is activated the first time you use it to access a site, and you’ll be able to use it until the available hours run out.


Of course, the average price per day diminishes with longer durations, and you’ll have more time to visit more attractions. For this reason, if you’re staying in Paris for more days, we recommend you get the longer duration passes.

Duration 2 days 4 days 6 days
Price €52.00 €66.00 €78.00

Where to get it

You can either get the Paris Museum Pass in person (printed on a ticket) or online, the cost is the same.

Things to keep in mind

  • With the Paris Museum Pass you are guaranteed free access to the permanent collections. Some museums also give access to their temporary exhibitions, but that is up to the individual establishments.
  • Some attractions in Paris (for example the Louvre Museum or the Versailles Palace) get very busy and require a reservation (even if you’re not paying because you have the Pass). To make sure you don’t miss out on anything during your visit, we recommend getting the pass and reserving your entries as early as you can .
  • If you are under 26 with EU residency, you can have free access to national museums and permanent collections in Paris, therefore you might not need the Paris Museum Pass.
  • If you are under 18 (from any country), you have free access to national museums and permanent collections in Paris, therefore you might not need the Paris Museum Pass.
