France - Other 13 Museums/ Monuments that have Free Entrance?

Below is a quote from the City of Bourges' web site stating the Jacques Coeur Palace is one of 14 free museums taking part in a study to see if this can have future impact, not only on attendance but on who attends-a sort of Social Profiling study. Free entrance now until the end of June.

Anyone know where the other 13 might be?

"Depuis le 1er janvier 2008 et jusqu'à la fin du mois de juin, l’accès au Palais Jacques Coeur est gratuit.

Cette expérimentation porte sur 14 musées et monuments nationaux.
Elle a pour objectif d’évaluer l’impact de la gratuité sur l’affluence mais aussi sur le profil des publics qui se rendent dans les musées.
Le but est de savoir si un tel dispositif permet d’attirer des visiteurs qui n’ont pas l’habitude de fréquenter les musées."

Oh, I get it ...10 museums and 4 national monuments. Thanks, Zerlina. I won't be able to take advantage since the "free" will end before my visit. But hopefully some others will be able to benefit. Anything to make $$ stretch further so we can see/do more.

I have often wondered why I don't hear more abot St Germain-en-Laye on this board...it is a wonderful chateau/museum.

Forgive my ignorance, but how do I know which museums are located in Paris? Yes, several of them have the word Paris next to them, but I can't figure out if that is the street name, etc. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
