For the 18th edition of Museums Night, the Musée de la Libération de Paris provides you with an original program created in partnership with Théâtre 14, to discover this Saturday May 14, 2022, for free.
Museums Night is a major cultural celebration gathering thousands of curious people every year in museums and monuments in France. This May 14, 2022, the musée de la Libération de Paris takes part in the event and opens for free and provides us with different entertainments to mark this special day.
The museum teams up with Théâtre 14 and serves a program mixing history, arts, sciences and poetry. Intrigued? Find out more about the Museums Night program below.
Exceptionally, the museum warns it will close at 8 p.m. that evening. The Musée de la Libération de Paris offers entertainments and tours in the afternoon, from 4:45 p.m. It enables you to visit several museums in the same day, saving your evening for other venues. A great deal for those willing to make the most of museums on Saturday!
Museums Night 2022 at the Musée de la Libération de Paris – program:
- Petrafictions Inauguration of Justine Emard’s installation
Found of technologic innovations, Justine Emard is an artist exporting her installations, performances and videos across the world. For one month, she stops at the Musée de la Libération de Paris for the Re-Génération festival. The Petrafictions installation offers a slide down the underworld of the cave. A flow of screened pictures guides us through a universe away from the world, oneiric and moneral. Deployed in the shelter of passive defense, that used to be a command post for French Forces of the Interior, the work connects to the remembrance place of the liberation of Paris to the endless history of humans and their caves.
Petrafictions is displayed until June 15, 2022 at the museum as part of the Re-Génération festival, designed and put together by Théâtre 14 to promote dialog between the different art forms and spaces.
- Impromptus poétiques autour de Louis Aragon Théâtre 14
Readings staged by Mathieu Touzé
6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Seven actors from Théâtre 14 expect you in the museum’s auditoriums to share a few poems written by Louis Aragon, on the battlefield in 1939-1940, and the clandestinity of the French Resistance. Four 30-minute sessions with a choice of poems not really the same, but not really different.
- Femmes photographes de guerre Free admission from 6:30 p.m.
They covered 75 years of international conflicts: eight female photographers are given pride of place at the Musée de la Libération from March 8 to December 31, 2022, through the “Femmes photographes de guerre” exhibition.
A wonderful, and very varied program taking you on a journey for Museums Night!
