Paris Museums - Alternatives to Museum Pass

Jump to last reply

Hi! I'm new to the forums and have found them very useful so far in planning my trip. I am going to Paris mid-April with my six year old daughter (just the two of us). I like the idea of the museum pass in order to bypass some of the longer lines, however I fear it won't be economical as we won't be able to see too many in a day. Past experience says that a three day itinerary takes about six days, though I suspect that will tighten up a little once her legs and attention span are longer ;).

So...what are some alternatives to the passes that will still allow us the advantage of skipping the lines? I saw that for some museums you can by online, but it locks you into a certain day which I would hate to do prior to arrival (I find traveling with young children requires a certain amount of flexibility). Are there ticket outlets in Paris that sell museum tickets by the ones?

Probably should be a new topic but on another note - has anyone tried to do the ballet with kids? Hansel and Gretel will be playing while we are there.

If there is already a good thread on this please post the link - I didn't turn up much when I searched.

Thanks!
