Must-see musées

Your Eurostar ticket takes you so much further than your destination. Once you get there, you can stroll aside water-lillied lakes, drop in on Whistler’s mother, see how humanity evolved and explore all four corners of the ancient world.

That’s because your Eurostar ticket gets you 2 for 1 entry to permanent collections and paid-for exhibitions at the iconic museums and galleries in Paris, Brussels, Lille, Lyon and Marseille listed below. Just show your ticket at the box office – it’s as simple as that.
