EVENT 8TH EUROPEAN MUSEUMS NIGHT
At the Musée de la Grande Guerre – Guided visits to the temporary exhibition and jazz concerts
On Saturday 19 May,the Ministry of Culture and Communication invites you to the 8th edition of European Museums Night,during which museums reveal and share their innermost secrets. Music,theatre,gastronomy,games and cinema – all the arts join hands and take over the museum all the better to highlight its contents. Night-time casts its spell,an invitation to dream. Museums outdo one another in the imaginative ways they transmit the pleasure to be had from visiting them and their collections. A range of remarkable,original,festive and poetic events for one and all is on the programme.
