This long Pentecost weekend with three days of rest is an opportunity to take some time to get some fresh air. On the program in Normandy: the European Night of Museums, Pierres en Lumières and many other possibilities to escape. We have selected a few tracks.

With three days of rest, this Pentecost weekend is an opportunity to take some time. Here are our ideas for going out near you in Normandy.

For European Museum Night, you can admire the works by moonlight in more than one museum. In Bayeux, the city’s three museums open late at night from 8 p.m. to midnight (last admission at 11:15 p.m.), entry is free.

In the program :

  • The Youth and Resistance exhibition at the Battle of Normandy Museum
  • The TaPIXIe exhibition in Bayeux at the Bayeux Tapestry Museum
  • The flash visit to the MAHB for the 150th anniversary of Impressionism – 15-minute commentary on Georges Seurat’s painting “Port-en-Bessin, outer port, high tide” at 8:30 p.m., 9 p.m., 9:30 p.m., 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.

The Château de La Mésangère opens its park to the public, and invites you to follow the routes and groves designed by André Le Nôtre. In the former commune of Bosguérard-de-Marcouville (Les Monts du Roumois), the building dates from the mid-17th century.e century, after the destruction of the old castle in 1592.

The Scot family, of Scottish and Protestant origin, acquired La Mésangère in 1659. Guillaume Scot, a wealthy merchant based in Rouen, undertook shortly after to have the park designed and planted. He called, in all likelihood, on André Le Nôtre, famous gardener of Louis de loup” (walls recessed in a ditch, allowing an uninterrupted view towards a landscape).

To immerse yourself in the world of the Second World War, head to the June 44 Museum in Aigle!

You can join the resistance network or play a vital role in the liberation of the country. Period decor and furniture, series of puzzles, you can understand History in another way. Reservation essential. Open Saturday May 18 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
