Paris on a budget: Museums with free admission
Here are the six museums that are participating:
Musée Guimet - National Museum of Asian Art
Musée Cluny - National Museum of the Middle Ages
Musée des Antiquités Nationales de Saint-Germain-en-Laye - National Museum of Archeology
Musée National de la Renaissance d'Ecouen - Everything from Renaissance sculpture and paintings to furniture
Musée des Arts et Metiers - Houses the collection of the National Conservatory of Arts and Crafts, which was founded to preserve scientific instruments and inventions
Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace - National Museum of Air and Space
If you are a student, you can also have a pretty complete weekend of Parisian art thanks to the French Ministry of Culture. Four well-known Paris museums are enticing the younger crowd, ages 18-25, with free admission one night a week. This means you can check out the Centre Pompidou (Wednesday nights), the Musée d'Orsay (Thursday nights), the Louvre (Friday nights) and the Musee du Quai Branly (Saturday nights) without spending a penny -- except for your Metro ticket.
