Long Night of Museums in Tricity
May 19, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - May 20, 2018 @ 6:00 amFree - PLN1
This Saturday night you may enjoy a unique cultural event – the Long Night of Museums. Cultural institutions and museums across Europe will take part in this event including the museums of Tricity, Poland.
The first Night of Museums took place in Berlin back in 1997. Many museums joined in this event attracting both the visitors and the attention other institutions and museums in neighboring countries. It didn’t take long for other countries to follow this idea of having all-night-long exhibitions. For example in 2002 the city of Paris expanded the concept to promote not only museums but also various arts under the name of Nuit Blanche. Today, the Long Night of Museums is celebrated in almost every European country.
Events in Tricity
Just as in the previous years, Gdansk, Sopot and Gdynia take part in the Long Night of Museums. The majority of institutions will open their doors for visitors at 7 p. m. Most of museums, theaters and art galleries offer free admission or amazingly cheap entrance fees (for example 1 PLN) for some of the exhibitions. Some of those places will present extra exhibitions, performances or projections. For instance, Wisłoujście Stronghold in Gdansk will have actors reconstructing some historical events, whereas the Museum of Emigration will present the theme of UFOs by means of exhibitions and events. Prepare for an exciting sleepless night this Saturday.
