If the Panthéon is no museum, the national monument makes the best of the Museums Night to open for free and at night during its “Grande Bibliothèque” weekend. This Saturday May 18, 2019, from 7 p.m., writers, poets and performers can roam around the Panthéon.
It will be a beautiful occasion to visit the monument of the Great Men of the French Republic, starting from the French Revolution. After the July Monarchy, a period during which the Panthéon becomes a church again, it was only in 1885 that the monument featuring this impressive dome finally becomes the monument devoted to Great Men with Victor Hugo’s funerals. We have the graves of Rousseau, Voltaire, Emile Zola, Jean Moulin, Louis Braille, Jean Monnet, Marie Curie and Simone Veil.
On the menu of Museums Night 2019 at the Panthéon:
Please note that the admission to the monument is free all weekend long in exchange for a book to give to the Bibliothèques Sans Frontières association as part of the Quartier du Livre festival and will be free for all from 6:30 p.m. on Saturday!
