My husband and I went to quite the lovely event last night: La Nuit Européenne des Musées.
It's an annual do, but we hadn't attended it for a few years.
We used to go to the Musée Denys-Puech often with the girls when they were little ones. It was a suitable outing for rainy Sundays, and at the time, was Rodez's only functioning museum. (Musée Fenaille was closed for remodeling for years.)
"Post rock" among the menhirs
The principle of La Nuit des Musées is not only to open for free on a Saturday night, but also to provide various types of entertainment inside the establishments. We got in on the tail end of a concert in the Musée Fenaille's stunning inner courtyard.
We ran into some old friends.
And we finished up with a photo-taking stroll through centre ville.
