Museums Night 2019 at the Musée de Cluny – Musée du Moyen-Age

The Musée de Cluny also takes part in Museums Night. On Saturday May 18, 2019 brace yourself because you’ll experience a night of poetry with literature students.

In the heart of Paris, the Musée de Cluny brings together remains from the Middle-Ages in a very beautiful museum set where the former Cluny Gallo-Roman baths used to be, of which the frigidarium is still visible.

It’s a wonderful place to visit for both its architecture and collections. We must say that the Gallo-Roman baths resisted for over 1800 years, in the heart of an always-changing city. In 1485 the abbots of Cluny build their housing against the baths, the tall building where the Museum of the Middle-Ages collections are gathered!

Currently under work, the Musée de Cluny only presents a part of its collection, 70 treasures from the Middle-Ages including the famous tapestry, The Lady and the Unicorn.

Starting from 7 p.m., the students of the La Voix d’un texte association will read poems in the frigidarium, verses selected by Michel Zink, Member of the French Academy and honorary professor at the Collège de France.

Please note that readings are also available at the Panthéon for this Museums Night if you feel like frolicking for the night.
