For Museums Night 2019, run to Paris Grand Palais. On Saturday May 18, 2019 the Moon and Red exhibitions will be free of charge for everyone and on the occasion, dancer Yoann Bourgeois will dance around the hypnotic stairs.

Museums Night is on Saturday May 18, 2019. On the occasion, the Grand Palais opens its doors to the general public for free nighttime tours! This is a double opportunity for us since we can discover exhibitions by night and for free, knowing the ticket fee for an exhibition costs around €12.

Every year, over 8000 people enjoy the Grand Palais for a night, so don’t hesitate to arrive early, even at 6 p.m. or 7 p.m.!

On the program of the Museums Night at the Grand Palais:

  • Fugue au Clair de Lune by Yoann Bourgeois
    Yoann Bourgeois takes over the Salon d’Honneur of the Grand Palais with its magic staircase. For 10 minutes, he defies the gravity and weightlessness by throwing himself into the void and reaching the top right away.

  • Free visit of the Moon
    From April 3 to July 22, 2019, the Grand Palais dedicates an exhibition to the moon and its representations. A retrospective going from the Apollo 11 mission to travel through time and discover the very particular vision artists and scientists had of this Earth satellite. Let’s get on board with Galileo, Cassini and Jules Vernes.

  • Free visit of Rouge
    From March 20 to July 1, 2019 Paris Grand Palais offers an exhibition about the art of socialism in Russia after the October Revolution. What art should be in the new socialist society? What are the ratios of power between plastics innovations and ideological constraints? An immersion into the new vision of political art to discover as soon as possible.
