free museum entry for EU residents under 26?

Hi, i've got an important question on paris museums.

Basically I'm not an EU citzen,

but then I live in the UK, cause I study here as an international student.

I have a student ID from my university in England.

and of course, I'm under 26.

Can I get free entry for Louvre, d'Orsay, Rodin, and such??

If so, is it okay to just show my UK student ID at the queue?

Thank you for the replies in advance!!

You have to check the museum websites for each individual admission details. I can confirm that you can visit the Louvre, d'Orsay, and Rodin for free.

This is what the rule says: "18-25 year olds who are not citizens of an EU member state but are long-term residents of France or other EU country(holders of a visa valid for more than 3 months)"

The UK is not an EU country.

The UK is a member of the EU.

It is not party to the Schengen agreement.
