Reopening of museums : What to do in Paris from 19 May ?

Following the announcement of a phased end of lockdown schedule, 19 May 2021 marks the reopening of many cultural venues that have been closed since the third wave of Covid-19. It is finally time to reconnect with the lost pleasures we have been looking forward to.


As we enter the second phase of the deconfliction plan, which is something for everyone to enjoy, many French people are wondering how they will be able to reorganise their days to get back to the feeling of life as it was before. The choice is vast: reopening of terraces, shopping centres, museums, cinemas and many other places, while waiting for wider reopenings on 9 and 30 June. Added to this, the curfew is also shifted to 9pm instead of 7pm, so you can enjoy the spring sunshine for longer.


So it’s time to enjoy the good times. This is the opportunity for us to share with you our selection of exhibitions, in order to make up for lost time.
