If you find yourself in Lille on the first Sunday of the month, you’re in luck – like many other cities in France, Lille participates in Free Museum Day! Yes, you heard right: every museum in the city is free for the whole day. Once every month.
Lille has a number of wonderful museums, but I definitely recommend heading over to Palais des Beaux Arts to truly get the most bang out of your buck (your buck that you’re not even spending, that is).
This place is enormous and endless and diverse; I never feel like I’ve seen everything, though I’ve been three times already! Be sure not to miss the sculptures which are located in my very favorite room in all of France.
