There’s SO much to do in Paris besides art museums. I know you are art lovers, but it seems crazy to cancel or postpone your honeymoon because of this. I’m sure some museums will still be open. But, if that was really going to be the highlight of your trip, then I guess you could postpone.

Another thing to consider is getting on the Train and going to London or another country.  I would keep your plans because you might find reasons later to not go… i.e. house/kids/money.

When we were in Italy the trains went on strike, but it only lasted for a day.  So just keep an eye on it and see what plays out you still have time.

Let me tell you something.  The French strike at the drop of a hat.  Just go!  You’ll have a great time.

You never know how long a strike will (or will not) last.  Don’t cancel!

Go go go! Just because the museums are closed doesn’t mean there isn’t a ton to do and see!  In fact one of my biggest regrets of going to Paris was spending the whole time in museums and not enough time on the street, in restaurants, clubs, gardens, etc!

The train from London to Paris wasn’t priced bad at all. Don’t forget to take your student IDs because you get discounts at the muesums and different things.

GO!!! You need this and whether or not the museums are open you will have an amazing time. It will lead you in different directions off the beaten path and will be such a great adventure. Yes! GO!

Those crazy French!  I was lucky enough to get to live in Paris for a year in college.  There was always some sort of strike going on!  I bet it won’t really last for 3 weeks.  Usually they only last a few days.  Don’t cancel your trip.  The museums are great, but like everyone has said, there is so much else to do!  And if you can take a train up to London for a couple of days once you’re there, that sounds like a lot of fun too!  Just make sure there isn’t a railway strike about to happen before you get back to Paris!  That’s happened to me before!

Tate Modern is cool.  You might also consider Madrid.  Or Amsterdam.

I totally understand where you’re coming from because Fiance and I are HUGE art lovers and the museums were the highlight of Paris for me. I wouldn’t cancel the honeymoon though – it would be such a disappointment for both of you and it might be years before you get the chance to go again.

Why don’t you make plenty of back-up plans in case the main museums you want to see are closed? I am thinking like some of the smaller museums and attractions (like the Orangerie), as well as day trips outside Paris (maybe like Monet’s house at Giverny).
