The Musée de la Vie Romantique invites you to a very special evening on May 18, 2024: activities for the whole family are organized for this 20th edition of the Nuit des Musées in Paris.

Did you love the film Night at the Museum? We're offering you the chance to experience the same adventure... well, almost. On Saturday, May 18, 2024, the museums, monuments and castles of France invite you to Nuit des Musées : an evening of exhibitions, concerts, entertainment and surprises of all kinds, for the whole family.

The Musée de la Vie Romantique is takingpart in this 20th edition of the festival, offering us a moment out of time, to the rhythm of the shows organized in the different areas of the museum. It's a chance to (re)discover George Sand's home, her works and her famous artist friends, who left their mark on 19th-century Parisian life. The Nuit des Musées is also an opportunity to enjoy the temporary exhibition currently on show in this hidden museum in the 9th arrondissement.
