Visit The Louvre and it’s free!

For a change the French are imitating arch-rival Britain by introducing a free admission policy to 18 French national museums including The Louvre (above), in a bid to encourage more French people to visit them. (I suppose they are so busy with food and fashion, that they have forgotten all about the museums). Normally the entre fee is about 6-9 Euros. This is an experiment by the French Government that will run until June 30 this year for French nationals as well foreign tourists.

    Just so you know, French museums were used to be free before President Chirac came to power, so it’s not exactly a new initiative.
    Also museums are free first sunday of every month in Paris.
