Enjoy a museum in a different atmosphere...


Night at the museum. . . sound special!
You call this moment "Twilight", we call it "between dogs and wolves". . .
With the night falling down, the light is changing, so are the statues.
You will be surprised by the feeling of being sometimes alone in a room and will appreciate a calm moment facing the masterpieces.

We will see differents rooms and many artworks.
will give keys to understand the reasons behind the legends.

Please note that content and orders are subjects to change according to you (your wishes !) and the Louvre (Not every rooms are open at the same time in the Louvre according to the day of the week).

If a room is close I will always show you another one with surprises.

Important !
