For Museums Night 2021 on Saturday July 3, the Petit Palais is happy to welcome us for a night. And this year again, the museum has many surprises and delights in store: in the rooms and the garden for a very unique night shining a light on drawing, alongside Les Soirées dessinées.

On the menu of Museums Night at the Petit Palais, an access to the permanent collections and the "Edition limitée" exhibition including a focus on drawing. As well as live creations by artists from Les Soirées dessinnées: 10 artist will ake drawings inspired by the permanent collections, using different techniques.

They will also show engraving techniques, creating a link with the temporary "Edition limitée" exhibition. Members of Les Soirées Dessinées will make the most of the night to show what they did over lockdowns, conducive to creation.

Drama scenes are also planned in the museum from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. Teens and children are also encouraged to take part in the creation workshops hosted by the museum's artists. Let yourselves be introduced to the different drawing techniques and take your first steps in the art world. Perhaps one of your works of art will be displayed at the Petit Palais one day!

The Petit Palais takes us back to childhood with pencils and reminds us of how happy and proud one can be after creating a work, whether you are novice or skilled already. No prior booking is required, come and enjoy these little workshops likely to bring the young artist you once were back to life.

Do not miss either the musical interventions of the Conservatoire of the 8th arrondissement: musicians will provide a wonderful concert in the rooms and by artists, in the museum's south gallery, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

And if the weather is mild enough, do not hesitate and have a walk in the semi-circular garden lined with beautifully adorned peristyles, a masterpiece by Charles Girault who designed the Petit Palais for the 1900 World Fair.
