The 3rd weekend of September is the Heritage Day, launched in 1984. These days are a privileged moment allowing the French to visit their national heritage: museums, but not only (monuments, churches, theaters, castles, but also private residences, banks, courts, prefectures, courthouses, town halls, chambers of commerce, etc.).
The night of the museums
The Museum Night was first held in Berlin in 1997. Every year in May, some museums are open from sunset to 1am during the Museum Night. Usually free of charge.
