On Saturday, 19th of May 2018, Estonian museums will open their doors for visitors for a night full of special events and exhibitions, celebrating the Night of Museums. In 2018, the much-loved Museum Night will take place under an umbrella theme of ‘Night of Parties’ - exploring why do we like to party, what kind of traditions we have for celebrating, etc.
Last year, more than 110.000 people took part of the Night of Museums, to enjoy both free access and the special programmes and excursions offered by museum teams all over Estonia. Everyone is welcome to the biggest museum party in Estonia! Around 200 different museums, art galleries, manor houses and other organisations are expected to open their doors for the 5-hour long event.
The museums participating in the programme will open their doors from 6pm to 11pm and during this time the entrance will be free.
The Night of Museums is organized by Estonian museums and the Estonian Museum Association.
