Tonight, take advantage of free entry to many museums across France as part of the Nuit Européenne des Musées.
This initiative is a lovely way to experience some of the French Riviera’s best museums as the sun sets and the buildings and displays are illuminated.
Some participating museums on the French Riviera include:
- Picasso Museum (Antibes)
- Musée National Fernand Leger (Biot)
- Musée Renoir (Cagnes sur Mer)
- Musée des Beaux Arts (Nice)
- Musée National Marc Chagall (Nice)
- Musée de la Citadelle (Villefranche sur Mer)
The listing of participating museums in the Provence-Alpes-Côte dAzur region is downloadable here: Programme_PACA
For full downloads of France-wide participating museums, see the link here: http://nuitdesmusees.culturecommunication.gouv.fr/Actualites/Decouvrez-les-programmes-regionaux
Top tip: I have visited the website and the geo-locating and search is not very specific, so for the best user experience I recommend you click on the Programme_PACA link above, or for a general search go to ‘Accéder Au Programme’ or ‘A Proximité’ and zoom into the map of France, then the French Riviera region. Click on each pin to see details of each participating museum including opening hours this evening.
