National Museums Re-Open
According to radio news reports, all national museums and monuments are to re-open today after a prolonged strike. Non-stop negotiations resulted in agreements to most of the worker's demands, mainly for more staff.
Access to Paris museums such as the Louvre and Orsay, and monuments like the Arc de Triomphe, the Château in Versailles, should be normal today.
