Why is the Paris Museum Pass worth buying?

The Paris Museum Pass is worth buying for anybody who wants to fully experience the museums and monuments of Paris. Participating museums and monuments charge between 6.50€ - 20.00€ for entrance. During peak tourist periods you will also have to spend a considerable amount of time waiting in line to buy your entry tickets. That means that if you are planning to visit two or more sites per day then it is a good idea to buy the Paris Museum Pass. You will gain valuable time to enjoy Paris, and you will probably save a considerable amount of money as well.

Are there any other advantages?

Perhaps the greatest advantage of the Paris Museum Pass is the flexibility that it gives you. During your visit to Paris you will frequently find yourself in the situation where you see a famous monument that is not on your planned agenda, but it looks interesting enough to make a quick visit. But after considering the waiting time to buy tickets and the unplanned additional cost, you may decide not to visit. For example, visiting Notre Dame cathedral is free, but walking up to the top of the towers to see the great church bell and view of the city will cost you 6.50€ and a visit down in the crypt will cost you another 3.30€. Or while strolling on the Champs-Elysees, you see the Arc de Triomphe, and there are people walking around at the top, but you decide against walking up yourself, because it would cost 9.00€ plus a ten or fifteen minute wait to buy tickets, just to take a look. With the Paris Museum Pass, all of this is free; no waiting in line and no additional cost.

Can I extend the length of my pass?

The Paris Museum Pass cannot be exchanged or extended. If you think you might want to visit museums for six days you should buy the 6 day pass. Or you could also buy 2 - 2 day passes and take a two day break from museums.

Wrap it all up for me, what's the story in a nutshell?
