May 8 is a National Holiday in Paris - Any Problems? Museum Pass/ STRIKE?

Jump to last reply

Hi All, ( DATE OF VISIT - May 6 - 12 - 7 days)
I understand that May 8 is WWII Victory Day in France - a NATIONAL HOLIDAY.

Any advice on closures, crowds, etc. that may occur on a HOLIDAY?
Should our itinerary be altered to accommodate the Holiday?
Any particular DON'T MISS things on May 8?
Any tourist sites that would be less crowded?
Will department stores be closed, etc??

Next question:
If we get a 4 day Museum Pass and there is a Metro strike (many museums close then
also in sympathy) can we be re-imbursed for not being able to use the pass (sounds like a fairly lame question). If we don't buy the pass until we arrive in Paris will we be able to know if there is going to be a strike in the next 4 days? How much notice time ahead is given before a strike?
Is the 4 day pass overkill for a week's stay? Will definitely use it for Versailles on Saturday.
Will not use the pass on a Monday or Tuesday.
Desired museums: (some for just a peek) Louvre, Orsay, Orangerie, Cluny, Montmartre ascension, Rodin, Army M. and Napoleon's Tomb, Versailles.
SEEMS TO ME WE WILL NEED A 4 DAY PASS.
Thanks to all.
