Nuit Blanche is an annual all-night art festival in Paris. During this one evening, which is typically in October, museums are opened until the wee hours of the morning with free admission and art exhibits are on display throughout the city. Mr. Selfish and I were lucky enough to be in Paris for Nuit Blanche 2012, which was on October 6th. We went with my little Parisian cousin, Lisa, and had a blast – despite the rain.
First, we headed to the Grand Palais. It is located on the Champs-Élysées in the 8th arrondissement. I always admired the building and figured we would take advantage of the free admission during Nuit Blanche. The line was quite long, but it was still early in the evening so the line moved quickly. We were only in line for about 20 minutes.
