La Nuit des MuseesBlogger has not been working for the last hour, so I will write a quick post. I found out that tomorrow is La Nuit des Musees here in Paris. Most museums -- 76 in and around Paris -- will be open from 7pm until midnight and offer free admission.
Additionally, some museums will have 'lights in the night' -- a game of shadows and lights for their displays. For instance, at the Pompidou Center there is an exhibit by visual artist Nathalie Junod Ponsard where light irradiates the trajectories and their displacements of the visitors. At the Louis Braille museum in Coupvray, you visit the museum by candle light. There are some concerts and workshops being hosted as well at other museums.
Check out the website for more information. Maybe I will see you at one of the museums. I am the one with two red-headed kids.

There's more musées in Paris alone than I'd know what to do with!

I had the pleasure of visiting France in 1994 when I did a 2 month trip to England and Europe. I was captivated by Paris, I spent only two days there, but enough to enjoy the sights, sounds, smells of Paris. As a visitor from the landownunda, Paris lived up to my expectations and perceptions. It must be exciting living in another part of the world that has a completely different language and culture. I have had the pleasure of visiting via Michele's M&G, I will definitely come back and have a look around.
