European Heritage Days 2019: the secret places to visit in Paris and Ile de France

European Heritage Days are often considered as a free weekend in museums and monuments. But it’s often the opportunity to visit places that are usually closed to the public, department offices, workshops, and even archives and museum storages. On Saturday September 21 and Sunday September 22, 2019, don’t miss your meeting with hidden heritage!

European Heritage Days are back this September on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22, 2019 in Paris and Ile de France. Over 1500 places in Paris and Ile de France take part in European Heritage Days and open their doors.

Museums, monuments, churches as well as high schools, public and religious institutions with many activities, most of them being free of charge but still playful to share this respect of the Heritage during this great national celebration!
