The Night of Museums is an exceptional event taking place throughout Europe. This year it will take place this Saturday.

Illuminated tours, fun trails, screenings and exceptional activities

Each year, it allows new audiences to discover culture by opening the museums of Europe’s largest cities for an evening, often free of charge. The city of Paris is therefore no exception and actively participates in this unmissable event!
The European Night of Museums will take place this year on Saturday 13 May. The museums will open their doors free of charge as soon as night falls. Illuminated tours, fun trails, screenings and exceptional activities will allow the public to enjoy a friendly and fun museum experience.

Discover museums during the night

This year will mark the nineteenth edition of the event. Since its launch in 2005, the European Night of Museums has attracted a large audience each year to a growing number of museums. The success with young audiences has been confirmed.
The operation “The class, the work!” », in partnership with the Ministry of National Education and Youth, is renewed this year. It has enabled many classes and museums in France to develop projects which, during Museum Night, have encouraged the attendance of a school and family audience.

A lot of different activities

Among the activities on offer, the Musée des Arts et Métiers will offer family workshops as well as demonstrations of certain objects from its collection. For example, you will discover how a phonograph, a pianola, a telegraph works… or you can also watch the earth turn !
Also on the program, several unusual activities at the Monnaie de Paris: From 10 p.m., you can discover the museum in the dark, by the sole light of a flashlight, enough to observe surprising details of the Hôtel de la Monnaie .
Also go on a treasure hunt. The guards of the museum will entrust you with several missions to win the jackpot!
You can also take the opportunity to visit the current exhibition, “Money in Art”.
