Night of the museums 2012

affiche Night of the museums Once again is our yearly date in Retournac during the “European Night of the Museums” : The Noctunal Gathering will take place on May 19th 2012.

While waiting for night to fall and the gathering to start, visitors will be able to have another look at the permanent exhibition and get a new vision of the collections, as the failing light will play a part in the museography. Thus, certain objects from the collections will be put forward.








by candle-light and lighting globesFrom 22:00 hours onwards, The Night Gathering will take place for an hour in the centre of the museum : in the dark, the noise of the bobbins will take over the museum, while the lace-makers work as in the days of old, by candle-light and lighting globes.

Again this year, the lace-maker will be able to fill-up their baskets with what they need as there will be a sale of thread, bobbins and other accessories for lace-making, from the “Centre d’Enseignement de la Dentelle du Puy".


Access free of charge from 20:30 to 23:00 hours.
