Nuit des Musées (Museum Night)
|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. Next edition : 19 May 2012.
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 (Paris 09). Musée Zadkine (Paris 06) or the Victor Hugo house (Paris 04)…
Next edition : 19 May 2012.
