Christmas Day In Paris....What To Do?

Does anyone know what will be open on Christmas Day in Paris? I will have the whole day to myself and would like to try and visit any tourist sites that will be open. Thanks for your help!

1. Re: Christmas Day In Paris....What To Do?

There are already quite a few threads about this topic. Have you checked them?

Short answer: Eiffel Tower will be open, as will a couple of museums (Jacquemart Andre, Pompidou and Arts Decoratifs come to mind) and churches as usual.

Things will be limited on the restaurant front as well, though the large brasseries will be open as usual.

Isn't Pompidou closed on Tuesdays, so this year Christmas and New Year's Day?

Yep, you're right, so cross Pompidou on this one.

Another option to compensate: Espace Dali in Montmartre (though the exhibit dedicated to him at Pompidou, precisely, is apparently better than the museum itself)

There was an article in the Boston newspapers today about the Dali exhibit at the Pompidou...said it was very good.
