Paris,Amsterdam, Berlin Touring Budget

How much should I budget for museums or sightseeing for two people going to Paris? Also how much for Amsterdam and Berlin? Thanks! I'd like to stick with a low/moderate budget.

Reckon with an average cost of around EUR 12 for a museum visit. Berlin is cheapest, Amsterdam (Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh) the most expensive. The Louvre and Musée d'Orsay in Paris have free entry on the first Sunday of the month (but not in high season!) All museums you're likely wanting to visit have websites with information on the exact entry prices.
Sightseeing is, of course, free. And walking around is still the main attraction of a new city. (A few weeks ago we were on a small square in Bologna on a Sunday afternoon. We've been sitting there for more than an hour, enjoying all the life: elder people possibly on their way for a family visit, children playing, young parents behind pram, tourists looking for the entrance to the church. Great pleasure for free!)
All three cities have compact city centres with most of the attractions. Depending on where your ho(s)tel is, there won't be need for much public transport.

Of course Amsterdam and Paris both have museum passes that if going to say more than a few museums could be cheaper than paying individual tickets and often gives you priority entrance avoiding lines.

Buy these at the museums.

Both passes are good at dozens of museums - the value to me is with a pass I go into many museums I would never ever pay for and end up rather delighted - another aspect of a pass.
