Paris Story is a tourist attraction with three components:

The main attraction, Paris Story, offers a useful (if pricey) orientation for first-time visitors to Paris who aren't familiar with the city's history, layout, and sights. The show's narration is a bit corny, but the color images are superb.

The show may be worth the cost if it's raining, your feet are weary, or you have euros to burn. (€11 for adults and €7 for children ages 6-18 when we last checked prices in spring, 2015).

Paris Miniature and Paris Experience are useful bonuses, especially if you arrive between shows and have time to kill.

A gift shop next to the ticket office is also worth a quick browse.

Where and when to visit:

Paris Story is open every day of the year, with hourly shows from 10 a.m. through 6 p.m. You can book online, but it's easier--and quicker--to buy tickets on the spot with cash or a credit card.

Tip: The theatre is in a basement, and the narrow entrance at ground level is easy to miss. Look for the "Paris Story" sign in the window (top inset photo) and the top-hatted mannequin of Victor Hugo next to the doorway.
