A must have if you plan on visiting any of the historic places who accept the pass. Definitely saves money and time (skip the line with a separate entrance). During our stay and due to construction/covid we needed to a pick a time to enter the Louvre, but all the rest were skip the line.

Very good price if you visit at least 3 museums a day. We was at Versailles, Orsay, Invalides Dom in one day, and in the other day at Sainte-Chapelle, Conciergerie and Louvre. We was with our kid (5 years old), if you are single, you can visit more than us.

Very recommendable. We could skip all the lines and the museum pass always worked. One just has to book a time range but that it obviously for free. The people at the museum pass pick up spot are very friendly.

The ticket office was not far from the Louvre and the staff were very friendly.

Beautiful and historic. No crowd at all (in mid-November).
