Description

An event established over ten years ago, on the third Saturday in May French museums open their doors to visitors for free, staying open late into the evening. Organised by the Ministry of Culture and Communication, this event aims to make culture more accessible to all. Throughout this evening, as well as presenting their permanent collections, some Parisian museums organise other activities, encounters, shows, readings and concerts.

During this one special night, you can visit or revisit the top museums in the French capital, such as the Louvre, Musée d'Orsay, or Centre Pompidou, or be surprised by the Arts and Metiers Museum, the Decorative Arts Museum or the Palais de la Découverte (Palace of Discovery). This popular event also takes place in some thirty European countries. A long and fruitful night lies ahead…
