Free things to do and see in Paris?

Renting an apt. in Paris for one month, and I'm looking for things to do and places to see that are free of charge. I don't mean taking a picnic lunch to eat in a park, but specific things like this post I just read in another thread:

<<I highly recommend the Sunday evening, free organ concert at St. Eustache, which starts at 7pm. This is a very atmospheric church, it is where many French historical figures have been baptized, married, or had their funerals here, since the 1500's. The organ is world-famous. You don't need to book ahead, just get there an hour or so before.>>

What do you know of that's free in Paris?

Yes, I think I said that!-and there are many more free concerts in Paris, crepes, just check the flyers that are posted around town, but particularly, on the St. Germain des Pres.

degas - "walk" -
...and the man knows of what he speaks
Welcome back, degas, it will be good to have your "walk expertise" back on the forum again. Your fantastic routes have been missed

All of the Paris municipal museums (as opposed to the national museums like the Louvre, Orsay, Branly, or Pompidou) are free of charge. They are plentiful. The city of Paris website will give you all of the information.

Vielleicht hat sich Degas über einer Kleinigkeiten streng geärgert.

If your French language skill is serviceable, stop by the RATP Boutique at Châtelet and get a copy of the Paris Tours by Bus (I've forgotten the French title) and visit many less well-known sights with your transit pass.
