Paris’ Louvre Museum to hike entrance fee by 29%

The Louvre art museum in Paris will hike its basic entrance fee next year by 29%.

The Louvre, which houses the Mona Lisa and is the world’s most visited museum, said in a statement on Friday that its entrance fee would go up in January to EUR 22 (USD 23.70) from EUR 17. It is the first price hike since 2017.The Louvre said the higher tariff would help it deal with higher energy costs and fund free entry to certain people such as those aged under 18, teachers and journalists.

It did not mention the Olympics. However, the Louvre’s price increase is set to coincide with other rising costs in Paris as the city prepares to host the Olympics.

Paris metro ticket prices will almost double during the Olympic Games, which start on July 26 next year.
