Cultural visitor numbers

The survey of cultural visitors, carried out each year by the Paris Convention and Visitors Bureau (PCVB), looks at data on visitor numbers to Paris museums and monuments (permanent collections and exhibitions) over the past year. The survey of the year 2017 covers visitor numbers for 62 cultural attractions and 68 temporary exhibitions.

Paris’s cultural attractions welcomed 70.2 million visitors in 2017. That is an increase of 5.9% compared to 2016. This performance is characterized by strong growth in foreign visitors. It illustrates the recovery in tourism in the capital, which saw a record number of hotel arrivals in 2017.
