Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
The Paris Museum Pass and the ‘free museums on the first Sunday of every month’ scheme are good ways of cramming the best of the Parisian museum and gallery scenes into one or two days’ holiday. But if you don’t fancy shelling out for the pass, and aren't around for the second initiative, there are also plenty of museums offering free entry all the time.
Two of the best are secret sculpture museum the Musée Zadkine and anonymous photography hub the Galerie Lumière des Roses. Equally impressive permanent collections can be visited for free at the likes of the Musée Carnavalet and the converted houses of Balzac and Victor Hugo.
