Far-away lands at the Quai Branly Museum
The evening of May 19th, 2018 promises to delight you at the Musée du Quai Branly, a museum devoted entirely to the indigenous arts and cultures of the world. Guides await to take you on informative tours in a pleasantly subdued atmosphere.
Monet at the Orsay Museum
Another setting, another ambiance can be found at the Musée d'Orsay, where the Night of the Museums unveils the world of Claude Monet's Le Déjeuner sur L'Herbe, one of his first paintings, and the Nymphéas, a series of works created during the twilight of his life. You can view these European and world artistic heritage works to the accompaniment of a live jazz band.
Surprises at the Petit and the Grand Palais
On the occasion of the Night of the Museums, the Petit Palais will surprise and enchant you with an unexpected experience in which the works come to life.
