WHAT IS THE NIGHT OF MUSEUMS?
The Night of Museums (Múzéj) is a cultural program that started in 1999 following the French example and has been held in Hungary every year since 2003. A special feature of the program is that by purchasing one ticket (an armband), the programs of all participating institutions can be viewed that night. # MUSEUM2022
