Guides at your disposal and my recommendations.
Here are the main ones.
I have a list of smaller Museums offering wonderful collections away from beaten paths and crowds and in other areas of Paris. To be shared after booking.
I can design a visit for you with museum, surroundings, food.
I can put you in contact with wonderful Guides de Musées Nationaux for a tour in Museums or in Paris.
I am going to most exhibitions for my own pleasure and to be able to advise you while you stay.Catalogs to read are at your disposal.

o cut lines: buy a pass or tickets on line before.
You can buy a pass on line and pick it up at a shop afterwards. There is one on rue de L’Amiral de Coligny (rue du Louvre after crossing rue de Rivoli)
Be aware that a pass is valid for 3, 5 or more days in a row
Be aware that it does not cover all attractions.
Museums; most close on Monday (Orsay) or Tuesday (Louvre, Grand Palais etc..) Better check on lie before you go.
More and more propose late openings less crowded. Check on line
Organize your visit by areas: rather than wasting time on transportation going back and forth from one quartier to another one, check an area and explore everything you’d like to see there for 1 or 2 days (Museums, History, parks, food…)
Paris museums are free for their regular collections. Go to Free or cheap in Paris page
You can enjoy many castles and museums just outside Paris. Day trips are easy.
I can help you organize some day -trips or weekend-trips from Paris
Just to name a few here :
Fontainebleau, Vaux-le -Vicomte, Chantilly, and other parks and castles in Ile de France, itineraries upon request after booking.
