15th Museum Night to take place on Jan 31

ZAGREB, Jan 20 (Croatia Sun News) – More than 200 museums, galleries, libraries, archives, educational institutions and organisations from Croatia and neighbouring countries will participate in the 15th anniversary of Museum Night on 31 January, with this year’s theme being anniversaries, the Croatian Museum Society stated.

All the institutions participating in Museum Night will be open to visitors from 6 pm until 1 am in an effort to raise awareness about the importance of “museum past, present and future,” the event’s organisers said on their website.

Over the past fifteen years, hundreds of thousands of people have participated in Museum Night and one of  the most significant achievements of the event is that it has attracted a new audience because so many people “discovered” museums on Museum Night and later became regular visitors.

“The 15th Museum Night in a row is another opportunity for museum workers and others to offer the public various experiences, including museum collections, expert, scientific, educational and entertaining content, virtual tours of museums, historical buildings and protected heritage sites, and the application of digital technology, which has opened unimaginable opportunities of inspiration, interpretation and presentation of museum content,” said the organisers of Museum Night, Vesna Juric Bulatovic and Dubravka Osreski Jakelic.
