Is the Museum Pass worth buying?

It all depends. The Museum Pass gives you unlimited access to over 60 Paris museums and monuments.
Price is €35 for a 2-day pass, €50 for a 4-day pass and €65 for a 6-day pass.
It is worth its price if you visit over three museums a day. But time is money too, and you will bypass endless queues to get in!
