Lonely Planet review

The Palais Garnier houses the Musée de l’Opéra , which contains three centuries’ worth of costumes, backdrops, scores and other memorabilia. Included in the admission to the museum is a self-paced visit to the opera house itself, as long as there’s not a daytime rehearsal or matinee scheduled (in which case it closes at 1pm).
