Museums Night 2018 at the Musée d’Archéologie nationale de Saint-Germain-en-Laye

On Museums Night 2018, the Musée d’Archéologie nationale de Saint-Germain-en-Laye opens its doors for free from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. and offers guided tours and a live concert.

On Museums Night 2018, shall we escape from Paris and discover a royal palace, the Château de Saint-Germain-en-Laye? Since 1862, this wonderful building has been housing the Musée d’Archéologie nationale (the museum of national archeology) which features masterpieces from the Celtic age and the Gallo-Roman age.

Here is the detailed program for Museums Night:

  • Salle Piette
    Saturday May 19, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
    For Museums Night, two curators will present – all evening long – the Edouard Piette collection exhibited in the historic room that will be exceptionally open!
  • Musico Archeo
    Saturday May 19, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
    Take part in a unique music moment in the heart of the Musée d’Archéologie Nationale collection. A travel through the imagination at the beginning of thousand-year-old myths… Orpheus’ Lyre, prehistoric flutes… from bone to gold… in the look for the origins, when objects tell sound, when sound tells past… the past joins the presents and opens a window to the future…

  • Oeuvres à la loupe: Student-guides for Museums Night!
    Saturday May 19, 2018 from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
    A group of student from the Dauphine university, trained by curators of each department of the museum will make you discover or rediscover one of the biggest archeology collection in Europe, through the most representative objects from the varied eras: from the Paleolithic (over 800,000 years ago to the first Middle-Age (1000 AD).
