Backpacks in museums per Vigipirate Warning

Jump to last reply

I'm planning our days in Paris and have noted that on almost all the websites for the tourists destinations there is a warning that states due to the attack on Nov 13 suitcases and luggage are either not accepted or are limited in size. My assumption is that this doesn't include backpacks. I do realize we can't have any type of metal object that could be a weapon (knife, etc) in the backpack. We'll probably have a light lunch in the backpack to eat in a park with a few other essentials. If backpacks are also under increased scrutiny then we might have to rethink the order of some of our days. We're also planning on getting a smaller backpack than we've used in the past so we won't look like a pack mule.
