Four Canadian women will arrive in Paris on the morning of May 1, a holiday. We will leave in the evening on May 4, a Tuesday.The quandary is which pass will give us the best value, considering the holiday and the museum closures on Mondays and Tuesdays. Anybody offer any advice?

Well, first of all, you need to figure out what you would like to see. ALL museums will be closed on May 1st.

May 1 is a big deal there and your time is limited. Normally I might suggest a 2-day Paris Museum pass, but I'm not sure this works for you.

But some places might be open. We were in the Loire Valley on May 1 last spring, and the chateau in Chenonceau was open to visitors.

As I recall, many Paris museums (including the Orsay as well as Pompidou Center) are FREE the first Sunday of every month--there will be crowds, but the price is right.

As you probably already know, the Louvre is closed on Tuesday, the day you leave, and it will be closed May 1.
And likely you are aware that the Musee D'Orsay (to me, a must-see) is closed on Monday.

Aside from the Rodin Museum, the sculptor's The Thinker and other works are outside in the gardens.

I suppose it depends on how ambitious you are with the time constraints you have.
