Museum Night Saturday May 21st with special events all around France

Museums all over France come to life one night a year, and night-time revelers 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.

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 (9th), Musée Zadkine (6th) or the Victor Hugo house (4th).

You can be as audacious as you like at night! A museum can become a giant time machine.

There are hundreds of events planned all over France.
