Paris Museums by Night – Late Museum opening hours

Many Paris museums have openings at night. Of course they don’t remain open all night, but they close later than usual (after 9:00pm). Thursday night is the most popular evening for late closing.

It’s worth also knowing that certain museums – such as Centre Pompidou – which usually close at 10:00pm will stay open even later. Palais de Tokyo also stays open until midnight.

If you are thinking about spending a night at the museum, follow our guide for information and tips.
