Bonjour, Pourquoi seul le musée boude les euros alors que même les DOLMUS qui vous y conduisent se font payer en euro ? Dommage, car le musée perd de très nombreux clients potentiels

Pourquoi une institution publique devrait accepter une autre monnaie que celle de son pays ? Je ne crois pas que le Louvre accepte les liras ou même les dollars...
