The Complete List of Paris Museums & Monuments

Jewish Museum Paris

This information on Parisian sights has been gathered over the past 20 years through my work as a tour guide, a private travel consultant, and while writing and updating over a dozen guidebooks to Paris for Fodors, Michelin Green Guides, Time Out and countless websites. Rather than listing “the best” museums and monuments in Paris, I hope this guide provides you with enough information on each location to help you decide that for yourselves. I guarantee that no matter how well you think you know Paris, there’s a place on this list you haven’t discovered…yet!
