The night of museums

For almost a generation now, the last Saturday night of June is no longer just the celebration of the summer solstice, the eve of midsummer night, which Shakespeare filled with a spell-binding love story in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The doors of the museums open at night, while the almost half a million sleepless revelers have a bewildering choice of almost one thousand events. For more information, please visit to get more information on the event.
