May 19th, 2018 sees the return of an eagerly anticipated annual event. The Nuit des Musées (Night of Museums) offers a fantastic opportunity to explore your favourite cultural institutions late into the evening! Immerse yourself in the magnificent, heady, fascinating and diverse worlds of the greatest Parisian museums. Here are our suggestions for discovering the exceptional museums situated near to the Grand Hotel Saint Michel.
The unmissable Louvre Museum
The world’s most popular museum, the superb Musée du Louvre participates in the Night of Museums event! You’ll have until midnight to discover the collections of this irreplaceable institution of the Parisian cultural landscape. Egyptian or Renaissance, Romantic or Impressionist periods, the East or in the West; whatever your interests you’ll be amazed by the wonder-filled galleries of the Louvre Museum.
The Quai Branly Museum; here and elsewhere
The museum dedicated to the arts of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas awaits you on May 19th, offering for your pleasure thematic guided tours as fun as they are enriching. On the programme is an exhibition dedicated to the ghosts and hells of Asian art, evoking the spirits and fantastic creatures that have long been depicted in this region of the world - chills guaranteed! Music lovers will be delighted by the musical hiatus in the heart of the African collections. An excursion to the Musée du Quai Branly on May 19th will surely delight the whole family, young and old alike.
Visit the unforgettable Orsay Museum
Get a fresh perspective on the works of Monet at the Musée d'Orsay during the Night of Museums! This year’s event is entirely dedicated to that painter of genius. From Luncheon on the Grass to the Water Lilies cycle, explore Monet's dreamlike, poetic and delicate universe through guided tours and thematic pathways. In parallel, the Museum offers live jazz, a musical form that the artist particularly liked. Come and swing at the Musée d'Orsay, on the banks of the Seine, from 18:00 to midnight.
Art and crazy robotics at the Grand Palais
Situated close to the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, the Grand Palais will also open until midnight on the occasion of the Night of Museums. Here you can discover the exhibition called Artists and Robots, featuring works of art created by increasingly sophisticated robots. Beneath the great glass dome of the Grand Palais, you’ll explore immersive installations, music generated by strange machines, and astonishing sculptures. Lovers of painting may prefer the exhibition dedicated to the Czech artist Kupka, a pioneer of the abstract art movement.
