City-run museums are a source of budget-friendly fun and culture in the capital. While temporary exhibits at coveted museums and cultural centers like the Grand Palais, the Centre Georges Pompidou or the Louvre generally sell show tickets well over €10 a pop, the city's humbler (but almost uniformly excellent) museums host their own temporary shows that generally fall below that mark, currently in the €6-€8 range.

Museums like the Petit Palais, the Modern Art Museum of the City of Paris, the Musée Carnavalet (dedicated to Parisian history), and the Musée Cernuschi (focusing on East Asian arts and cultures) offer entry to temporary exhibits at much lower rates. The best part? Their permanent collections are entirely free, so if you still have the energy after seeing one of the paid shows, you can soak in the excellent free ones.
