Paris: Ticket for Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine

3. Paris: Ticket for Cité de l'architecture & du patrimoine

Experience the largest center of architecture in the world and go in one of the buildings of the 1937 World's Fair located opposite the Eiffel Tower.  Start at the Palais de Chaillot and cross the portal of Vezelay (the façade of an 800-year-old church from central France), a masterpiece of Romanesque art reconstituted full-size and reaching almost 10 meters high.  Spend time on the balcony of the apartment of the Cité Radieuse built by the famous architect Le Corbusier, before passing under the Dome of Cahors. Marvel at the extremely impressive example of a decorated dome from the 12th century in the south of France and admire the magnificent work of the artisans of the time in all its completely preserved glory. Take in a picturesque view of the Eiffel Tower. See the Museum's collection that brings together a selection of the monuments and frescoes depicting the excellence of French architecture. Reproduced life-size and down to the smallest detail or presented in the form of models and drawings, these emblematic French exhibits represent an exceptional collection from throughout the last 1000 years. See the masterpieces presented in three galleries of the Cité (casts, murals, modern and contemporary architecture) creating a magnificent ensemble of French architecture, covering more than 20,000 m².  Go on a totally immersive experience and move from enjoying a proposed version of the Arc de Triomphe to the Neptune fountain. Reflect on the smile of the Angel of Reims and admire the brush strokes of the Dome of Cahors. From Chartres to Marseille, from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, every step invites you to cross time and space to appreciate the beauty and elegance of the evolution of French architecture over the centuries.

A must have if you plan on visiting any of the historic places who accept the pass. Definitely saves money and time (skip the line with a separate entrance). During our stay and due to construction/covid we needed to a pick a time to enter the Louvre, but all the rest were skip the line.

Very good price if you visit at least 3 museums a day. We was at Versailles, Orsay, Invalides Dom in one day, and in the other day at Sainte-Chapelle, Conciergerie and Louvre. We was with our kid (5 years old), if you are single, you can visit more than us.

Very recommendable. We could skip all the lines and the museum pass always worked. One just has to book a time range but that it obviously for free. The people at the museum pass pick up spot are very friendly.

The ticket office was not far from the Louvre and the staff were very friendly.

Fantastic experience. Very friendly and professional guide. Thanks!
