A Free Night at the Museum
There is no better way to enjoy the sites of Paris than when it’s free! As everything you purchase in Paris will make you gasp a little, tonight the CIty of Lights let’s enjoy some culture and an alternative for a spring Saturday night free of charge. All 192 museums in Paris, including the big boys, Louvre and D’Orsay, are offering free admission to all and the best part is they are keeping their doors open till 1am. It is just like going out with the packed crowds on a Saturday night but with a little more cultural and a lot more money in your pocket.
Though the date changes, this is an annual May tradition here in Paris. If you can’t make it this year, you can maybe think about when you want to arrange your Paris visit. As the secret is not out to everyone, those who do know, will be taking full advantage of it leading to block long lines and packed metro’s. Best time to enjoy this treat, is early evening or after 11pm if you want a chance to actually see a painting without someone’s head in front of it.
