Nuit des Musées (Museum Night)

Nuit des musées
Enlarge the picture

Parisian museums also come to life one night a year, and night-time revellers flock to them. This  version of a Night at the Museum takes place every May. 


There is something unique about a museum at night, and only one night to experience it. The City of Paris’ contribution to this France-wide event includes the Musée d’Art Moderne, Musée Bourdelle, Victor Hugo’s house, the glass-roofed Petit Palais and countless other cultural attractions. These singular venues run a variety of events, and provide their own brand of stuff-dreams-are-made experiences.

Nuit des Musées

During the Museum Night City of Paris museums open usually from 6.00 pm till midnight. Discover by night the Petit Palais, the Musée de la Vie Romantique, a gem in the Nouvelle Athènes quarter (Paris 09). Musée Zadkine (Paris 06) or the Victor Hugo house (Paris 04)...
