This is a foldable card on which you will print your name and the date of first use. In most museums you will see two lines, one for ticketing and the other one for security check. Just go straight to the security check and show you pass for entrance. In two well known cases, you won’t be able to cut the lines because ticketing/security has only one queue, I’m talking about Notre-Dame towers and the splendid Sainte Chapelle (don’t miss it!), no choices there, you will have to wait in line but you won’t pay for entrance.
While the 4 and 6 days versions proves to be a great deal, I would say that the 2 days one can be oversized considering the number of places you can really visit in just 2 days? Let’s say that you’re spending half a day at Le Louvre, then you have 1 day and an half left for the other 50 museums/monuments? Consider buying individual tickets instead as explained in Louvre tickets page. Again like for the other passes, hotel delivery (or home) is so convenient via this online ticket desk, no time wasted figuring out where to buy knowing that it’s available for sale at participating museums, the only thing is that you need to enter the museum first.
My opinion is that the museum pass is not suitable for short stays like 2 days otherwise way worth it for 4 or 6 days, Go! Also included in some combo passes listed in tabs above combined with transportation.
