Will I need to pre-book any of the attractions?

For some attractions on the pass, there's no need to pre-book. However, several have limited slots or capacity, so you'll need to book in advance.

You'll find all the reservation details on the individual attraction pages under 'Know before you go' or on our reservation page.

Adult and child passes

Our adult (18+) and child passes (ages 2-17) offer fantastic value on all Paris attractions. If your children are aged between 2-17, they are still able to enter some national museums for free! Therefore, before purchasing a Paris Pass for teenage travelers, we advise you to check entry prices with attractions directly and consider purchasing individual tickets instead.
