Paris museums are only free on

by le_kakawhet

The first sunday of each month, and boy are the lines long! The entries can get expensive too. If you are studying art history, though, and have your student card with you as well as a printout of your current classes, you can get in free to most all the museums. I did that in 1991. Do some research first! check out it's a great site. Don't miss the flea market at St.Oeun, north of the city, that's amazing. That's a museum in itself. Too expensive to actually buy anything. have fun and wear a mask for the pollution (just kidding--I live here and don't breath, that's why I have to go swimming all the time, because I forget to breath during the day walking around outside
