La Nuit des Musées

My guide Last update 1 year ago
© Petit Palais
Museums in Paris stay open all night on 14 May. You can visit almost all the city's museums for free until 1 a.m! Museum night was introduced by the French department of culture in 2005 in collaboration with various other European countries. The original idea was to stimulate greater cultural debate. Many museums devise a special programme for museum night in order to attract greater numbers of visitors. Tip: make a plan of the museums you want to visit during your late-night trip. The website below lists all the participating museums.
