It’s now an unmissable event, as exciting and enlightening as it is fun; the Journées du Patrimoine (Heritage Days) open doors throughout Paris on September 15th and 16th.


Behind the doors of Paris

Make sure to get up early, or even make a booking where possible. As soon as your coffee is swallowed (with a croissant, of course!), grab your map of Paris and head to your favourite monument, landmark or building! Little-known parts of iconic locations, as well as entire places not generally accessible to the public, will be open to you.


Secrets unveiled, and stories told

In addition to visits and guided tours, many places offer courses, concerts, lectures, workshops and more. You’ll be able to peek behind the scenes of the Galeries Lafayette department store or learn the history of the Maison des Métallos (House of the Steelworkers). Or you might prefer to opt for a poetic stroll in the 20th arrondissement or a treasure hunt on the Pierre and Marie Curie campus and discover the universities of Paris. And if you don’t get to see everything, don’t worry; there’s always next year!
