It's free and in Paris it's rare. Let's enjoy!
In Paris and Ile-de-France, many museums (including some major Parisian museums) offer freebies. In particular, for young people (children, teenagers, students and young adults), which makes it possible to lighten the budget of the families at the checkout. Some days of the week or month (such as the 1st Sunday of each month), some museums are also free. Think about it! On the other hand, there may be a few more people these days. Privilege also the days of nightlife in museums. Many monuments are also free (national monuments among others).
A little bit of for a museum a little apart and free: Fragonard Perfume Museum in the Opera district (9th).
