Museums and cultural institutions across Romania will be opening their doors all night on Saturday and revealing their treasures.
Museums and cultural institutions across Romania are to open their doors all night on Saturday, May 19, as part of the annual Museums Night.
Romanian museums will be joining around 3,000 other museums in Europe that are marking the event.
Thousands of Romanians are expected to attend exhibitions, performances, screenings and interactive events, hearing hitherto little-known stories of different objects in the museums.
Some 25 museums and foundations will open in Bucharest alone, including the National Museum of Art, the National Museum of Maps and Old Books, the Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of Romanian History, according to the official website of the event, www.noapteamuzeelor.ro.
The new National Library headquarters will host the World Press Photo exhibition, which returns to Romania after a 17-year absence.
The National Network of Romanian Museums has printed maps for the occasion to facilitate access to all museums on the night. Now in its eight edition, the Night of Museums is growing in popularity each time.
