The European Night of Museums, the 19th edition of which will take place on Saturday 13 May 2023, is based on a simple principle: invest museums to discover or rediscover, overnight, in an unusual, festive and playful way the riches and diversity of these establishments, places of exchange, encounters and learning, memory smugglers and producers of emotions.


Led by the Ministry of Culture, the European Night of Museums is an opportunity to discover in a different way, in a night-time atmosphere, the extremely varied collections housed in the museums of our region.

Alone, with friends and family, visitors will be able to compose the route of their choice: guided tour of the theatre, games of tracks, conferences, musical animations, reading of tales, surveys at the museum, dance shows, concerts…
