Museums by Moonlight: The Night of the Museums

Saturday, May 20 2017 is the Nuit European des Musees, the one night a year when all the museums in Europe party under the moonlight, welcoming their noctambule guests until 11pm with music, surprises, guided tours… and all FREE!  Starting at 6pm and going to at least 11pm, forget the normal 10€ entry fee: you can get in for free and then bounce from one museum to another for a night of culture and fun.

All museums are featuring special programs, music, displays, performances, tours or lectures. Click here for the official Nuit des Musees site, and then scroll down and click on Provence Cote d’Azur to get the scoop on what’s going on in the museums near you.

If you were taken aback by the abrupt hike in museum admissions (one day free… and the next 10€ a pop!), and haven’t gotten around to getting your papers together to get your Passe Musee, here’s your chance to get back in for free and prowl your favorite museums in the moonlight.

There are special presentations, performances, exhibits, music, tours and ‘happenings’… and there is even a special Museum Night smart phone app to help you navigate the festivities under the stars…
