French museums soon free for visitors under 25? Oui!
That's for the 18 national museums, including the Parisian favorites: the Louvre (usually 9 Euros) and Musée d'Orsay (9.50 Euros). The new policy comes just in time for summer backpacker travel--it starts April 4.
The country's trial period seems to have worked out--from January to June of last year, visitors of all ages got free admission to 14 of the country's museums.
Sarkozy's plan to promote French culture also includes building a new history museum, lifting a partial freeze on state funding for the performing arts, and forming a new arts council.
