Ile-de-France residents can now use their Navigo transport card to enter and benefit from reductions in more than 300 cultural attractions in the region.
This is the case for the four million people holding a monthly, annual, Liberté +, Senior or Imagine R Navigo package, confirmed the regional transport organization Île-de-France Mobilités. The Navigo Easy, Day and Discovery packages are not part of the system.
To access it, users can scan their pass at the entrance to participating cinemas, theaters or museums.
Using the Navigo pass will also give access to discounts, offers, free tickets for caregivers, welcome gifts and catering offers.
Participating sites include:
- 147 independent cinemas (but not the UGC, MK2, Gaumont or Pathé channels)
- 63 museums (including Orsay, Pompidou and Quai-Branly)
- 52 theaters and performance halls (such as the Paris Opera)
- 26 cultural centers
- 12 festivals (including Rock en Seine and We Love Green)
Most venues are in and around Paris, but there is a small selection outside of the immediate city area.
A complete list of participating locations will be available on the Île-de-France Mobilités website and will be regularly updated.
The new scheme comes from Valérie Pécresse, current president of the Ile-de-France region and candidate for the presidential election.

This is part of a move to get people back to public transport and cultural venues after the pandemic as attendance rates plummeted during the health crisis, raising fears to some of a sharp increase in access prices in the coming months.
