National Museums Still On Strike
Last night, talks between the Culture Ministry and national museum workers broke off without positive results. Today marks the 18th day of the workers' strike. Nearly all national museums in the Paris region and throughout France remain closed today - with no end to the strike foreseen.
All of Paris' own museums and monuments are open.

The métro, bus, and RER strike ended Friday morning. All public transport in the Paris region is operating normally. For details, see the next edition on Monday.
