Video capsule series

Frédéric Charbonneau,

History of the night

For the 2020 edition, the History of the Night lecture series offered in partnership with UQAM’s Research Group on the History of Sociabilities (GRHS) is changing formats. Through videos, four historians will introduce you to hidden facets of the history of the night, taking inspiration from artifacts presented in each world of the exhibition.

The videos will be broadcast one by one during the months of September and December on social media and in our newsletter. Too curious to wait? Access the content before anyone else during your visit to the Museum. The videos will be available on the microsite when you visit the Nights exhibition.
