The “Nuit des Musées,” or Long Night of Museum, will take place on July 3, 2021 on site after two digital editions. After closing for months, the European Museums Night will be placed under renawal, enabling visitors to enjoy many historic places, museums, and renovated cultural places. French Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot-Narquin invites all the French to "feel again the joy of walking them".

"La Nuit des Musées 2021" was highly expected in Paris and Europe after the coronavirus crisis. We did not forget this cultural highlight providing us with an exceptional late-night opening during which museums invite us to entertainments changing every year. Exceptional installations, prestigious guests, as well as guided tours, nighttime tours, concerts, shows, and entertainments for children pacing museums for an evening or perhaps even the night.

After a digital edition on November 14, 2020, the European Museums Night is back on July 3, 2021. To comply with health guidelines, many museums are setting up time slots and mandatory booking for virtual tours and activities!

When the announce has dropped, Roselyne Bachelot stated: "This 17th edition of the European Museums Night will confirm the dynamism and deep local anchoring of our museums I hailed the incredible daily committment for all publics. Everywhere in France, on Saturday July 3, come and discover or redisocver these exceptional places, the richness of their collections and feel again the joy of walking them".

As usual, Sortiraparis provides you with a selection of museums to visit in Paris and Ile de France for Museums Night 2021. Our selection is yet to come.

And if you want to stay at home, with the free Explor app, you cna discover many museums and monuments digitally from your SmartPhone or your tablet. A good idea for this Museums Night. Grévin Paris, the Palace of Versailles, the Jeu de Paume, the Musée Jacquemart-André... Hours of visits expect you!
