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.
