Paris Sewers Museum
The Paris Sewers Museum is open every day except Thursday and Friday.
From May through September, hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
From October through April, hours are 11 to 4 p.m.
The last time we checked, ticket prices were €4,30 for adults, or €3,50 for children from ages 6 to 16 (Children under 5 are admitted free.)
Holders of the Paris Museum Pass get in free.
Guided tours are free when available; foreign-language tours are offered only in the summer. You can easily explore the museum on your own, using the free booklet that you'll be given with your ticket.
The entrance to the Musée des égouts de Paris is at ground level, in the strip of park between the Quai d'Orsay and the Seine. (Look for the blue-and-white booth east of the Pont de l'Alma on the Left Bank of the river, in the 7th arrondissement.)
The nearest stop is Alma-Marceau (line 9) on the Right Bank; after leaving the station, cross the river to the Left Bank and turn left at the Quai d'Orsay.
The Pont de l'Alma station of RER Line C is very close to the museum. (Line C runs underground along the Seine with stops at St-Michel, the Musée d'Orsay, and Invalides on its way to Pont de l'Alma.) From the station, cross the Place de la Résistance and follow the left side of the Quai d'Orsay to the museum.
Lines 42, 63, 80, and 92 will bring you to the Pont de l'Alma. Note that the museum is on the Left Bank, or Eiffel Tower, side of the bridge. (See "Location" above.)
