A frequently asked question from my tour clients is “What museums are open on Monday?” I always automatically answer the Louvre and that is satisfactory but I did some research to see what other museums are open on Monday.
Curiously when I Googled “Paris museums open on Monday”, all that came up was museums closed on Monday. With a bit more research, I put together a list of museums open on Monday. If you know of any that I haven’t listed, please share it in the comments section.
In related news, an announcement was made two weeks ago that the Louvre, D’orsay, and Palais de Versailles will be open seven days a week starting in 2015.
