Just like every year – in May, the Long Night of Museums takes place in Warsaw and gives opportunity to discover extraordinary places, objects, and stories.
This is the biggest and at the same time most recognisable cultural event in the capital city has enjoyed enormous popularity since 2004. Institutions participating in the event are related with art, culture, and history. Organisers guarantee an interesting and rich entertainment programme, and show their corridors which often remain closed on a daily basis.
The Long Night of Museums is a pan-European event, but in Poland – unlike other European countries – it is not exclusively culture-related institutions that partake. Nonetheless, museums are the ones attracting the greatest numbers of visitors, waiting in the longest lines for their turn to enter. Popularisation of art collections is an ambitious and important task. There is lightness to the Long Night of Museums – due to its specific character, it is veiled in a certain extraordinary and inimitable atmosphere. Everybody is invited to enjoy nighttime strolls and interesting discoveries. On this night, art belongs to us!
