advance ticket for Mont St. Michel needed?

I will be making a day trip to Mont St. Michel in mid Sept on a Saturday. Do you think there will be long wait to get a ticket upon arrival? Can I get the ticket in advance online?

Thanks

I don't think it's even possible to purchase an advance ticket.

It's not a long wait.

You just need a ticket for the Abbey.

Just push past all the people gasping for breath after the climb!

Joking!!

No you should be straigh in.

Thanks.

I only have around 3 hours on the day of my visit. Do you think I would have enough time to visit the Abbey, as well as the 4 museums. Or should I skip some of the museums. And if so, which museums would you recommend?

Any advice?

In three hours, you barely have time to climb the stairs and see the abbey.

I would start with the Abbey.

It is a while since I visited - always the same when you live near - but I don't know of any museums. I seem to have noticed signs here and there. Museums can only be small so you might have time for one or two.

Just look in the window of Mere Poulard's and enjoy the view from the Abbey and the ramparts.
