Essential information

The bookings may be canceled due to events taking place at this site.
The visit of certain spaces (like the Grande Salle) is subject to the planning of the orchestras and technical teams of the Philharmonie, so the access is not guaranteed.

- The Musée de la Musique is open from Tuesday to Sunday and closes at 18h, so visits departing starting from 18:00 do not include the visit of the Musée. From July to October, the Musée will be closed between 9:00 and 12:00.
- In order to welcome you in the best conditions, we invite people with a disability to let us know your specific needs when booking a guided visit
