35th Long Night at the Museum 2015
On August 29th, Berliners and visitors alike have the possibility to participate in the 35th Long Night at the MuseumAugust 03rd, 2015
The idea of visiting museums at night was created in Berlin in 1997. In the following years, similar events started to be organized by different cities across Europe. Nowadays, almost every big city – and many small towns as well – have their own version of long night at the museum. It provides a great opportunity to become better acquainted with art and culture.
More than 100 museums and cultural institutions cooperate with one another to bring together these events. The 35th Long Night at the Museum will not only be a great opportunity to admire famous works, but also to get to know more about young, experimental artists. In addition to viewing paintings and sculptures, guests will also have the opportunity to attend many different concerts, open-air cinema screenings, plays, and performances. On the night, Berlin will be full of artists ready to talk about their work and inspirations. Museums will be open from 6pm till 2am.
The event is not only just for adults, children are also invited to attend, where there will be a special exhibition prepared for them. Furthermore, admission for kids under 12 years old is free of charge.
The easiest and the fastest way to get to different spots across the city would be using public transport, as U-Bahn, S-Bahn, buses, and trams. Regular tickets cost €18, concession tickets are €12.Tickets will be available not only at the museums, but also at ticket machines, different tourist service points, and at the theatre box offices.
