European Night of Museums

For its second participation in the European Night of Museums, the Bourse de Commerce – Pinault Collection, inaugurated in May 2021, is welcoming visitors for an exceptional free night opening from 7 p.m. to midnight. With family or with friends, this Saturday 13 May will give visitors the opportunity to discover the architecture of the monument and the exhibition "Avant l’orage". 

Free access to the exhibitions and the building (booking required)

Come and discover the history and architecture of the Bourse de Commerce: seen from the outside, the perfect circle of the Bourse de Commerce, unique in the Parisian landscape, is an architectural rarity. Embark on an astonishing journey through the five centuries of history and architectural transformations of the building. Discover its great restored decors and its preserved heritage, in dialogue with the radical and meditative intervention of the contemporary architect Tadao Ando.

Take a walk through the Avant l’orage exhibition and discover a world beyond the four seasons. Fifteen artists from the collection reinvent ecosystems and change the way we perceive the world around us. They create new landscapes in the concrete architecture of the Bourse de Commerce and bring nature into the museum. Through paintings, videos, and installations, experience art in a new way, before the storm breaks. 

The programme 

  • Let's talk about art !

Throughout your visit, mediator-guides are available to answer your questions. They will provide you with perspectives and introductory information to help you see the works of art in a different light and to ensure that you don’t miss out on the beauty and key features of the building.

  • Family visit: "A journey in the clouds" 

Go for a family walk in the clouds, big and small, to discover amazing landscapes: a secret waterfall, splashy coral reefs, inhabited seaweed cocoons... Guided by a mediator, discover a world of colours, sounds, and sensations where plants and animals attempt to reinvent new seasons.

7 p.m. / 7.15 p.m. / 7.30 p.m., for accompanied 6 to 12 year-olds. Tour leaves from the Salon. Free access, no reservation required, subject to availability.
