The Museum of Music, housed within the Cité de la Musique, in the heart of the Parc de la Villette. Over an area of more than 2,000 m2, visitors can see 1,000 instruments and art objects including such rare and extraordinary pieces as a tortoise guitar, an octobass and a crystal flute. Some of the items on display formerly belonged to musical celebrities such as Django Reinhardt, Frédéric Chopin and Frank Zappa.

The Museum of Music takes visitors on a chronological journey through Western musical forms from the 17th century to the present day, and on a geographical journey through different aspects of non- European music.

Visits to the museum have their own musical dimension an audio guide includes many recordings of instruments in the collections and there are daily free concerts.

For anyone interested in music, as well as for tourists discovering something new, no stay in Paris can be complete without a visit to the Musée de la Musique. With a Paris Pass you can visit this wonderful museum for Free!

The best idea ever! No line ups, subway passes, museum passes! Having the Paris pass was a terrific! We weren't familiar with Paris and by having the 2 day hop on, hop off pass, it enabled us to get the lay of the land first! The subway pass was terrific as you go can anywhere! We took a beautiful river boat cruise down the Seine! The best part of the pass was getting into all of the museums without lining up!! The line ups were really long and it was really hot, so walking to the front and just going in paid off royally!!

I wasn't sure when we purchased the Paris Pass that we would get our money's worth out of it. Boy, was i wrong! We saw more of Paris because we had the Paris Pass than we would have otherwise. Just being able to hop on and hop off the bus whenever we wanted, not to mention the boat trip, and the many attractions that were free because we had the pass. It made our trip to Paris more enjoyable and memorable.
