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.
On one spring night, museums across France open until 1am, offering a chance to see the Louvre, and hundreds more, for free. 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.
During the Museum Night City of Paris, the participating museums open usually from 7.00 pm to 1.00 am.
