France boasts a dizzying array of museums, galleries and salons devoted to virtually any topic imaginable. In a country so replete with culture, the French enjoy spending many of their weekends in museums, so travelers to France would be well-advised to schedule their forays into this aspect of French culture on weekdays whenever possible, to avoid the crowds. In cities such as Paris (see Paris Museums), one can avoid the long lines by purchasing a carte musée (Museums and Monuments Card) in advance from the Paris Tourist Office, which grants unlimited visits and priority access to 65 locations in - and around - the City of Light.

[Warning: results may be hilarious!] AltaVista provides a translation feature which will re-load this page in French. Machines and software are far from perfect, as you will see, because idiomatic expressions and even certain aspects of text formatting can confuse them terribly. However, at the very least, you may get a good laugh or even be amazed at what "artificially intelligent" programs can do these days!
