On Saturday May 19, 2018, as part of the Museums Night 2018, the Musée du Luxembourg opens late at night and offers a tour of the exhibition “Tintoretto. Birth of a genius” guided by students from the Université Paris-Dauphine.

For Museums Night 2018, the Musée du Luxembourg opens late at night, the occasion for all art enthusiasts to go and discover the building and the current exhibition: “Tintoretto. Birth of a genius”.

Not many people know that the Musée du Luxembourg was the first French museum to open to the public in 1750 and that became, in 1818, the first museum for contemporary art. First set within the Palais du Luxembourg, it moves to an annex building especially created in 1884.
