It's free and in Paris it's rare. Let's enjoy!
In Paris and Ile-de-France, numerous museums offer free of chargeThis is particularly the case for young people (children, teenagers, students and young adults), which allows families to lighten their budgets at the checkout. Some museums are also free of charge one day of the week or month. (like the first Sunday of each month). Think about it! On the other hand, there may be a little more people on these days. Also, give priority to the days of nightlife in museumsIn addition, a number of Parisian museums offer free access to their permanent collectionFinally, many monuments are also free (national monuments among others).

Most of the permanent collections of national museums are free for young people under 18 and for U-26 citizens of the EU. This free charge applies every day, without exception. On the other hand, temporary exhibitions usually pay off.

The Louvre Museum (1st) is free for all on Saturdays from 6pm until closing at 9.45pm.

We have a little crush  for a museum a little apart and free: Fragonard Perfume Museum in the Opera district (9th).

The list is long but a few examples among the biggest Parisian museums where young people will not pay their entrance ticket.
