Nine museums took part when Le Ticket was first issued in 2000, a figure that grew to 23 the following year, 53 in 2002, 123 in 2004 and 138 in 2005.

The "Ticket" is intended to encourage visits to the museums in the cross-border zone and to promote the cultural heritage of the region.
Local population and tourists.
Every year the body issuing the "Ticket" publishes a bilingual brochure describing each of the museums taking part in the scheme, and including special entry price offers for the museums that do not have free-of-charge entry policies. The brochure is distributed at no cost via tourist offices and museums.
