Hamburg: between April 16 and 17, the long night of museums

The Long Night of Museums will be held in Hamburg also this year. The exhibition spaces with art collections will be open to the public from 5 pm of Saturday, April 16 to 10 am of Sunday 17th.

The event is awaited by all citizens and tourists because it is not only an opportunity to visit museums, galleries and art venues in unusual times, some of which are generally closed to the public, but it also involves the participation to a really exciting collective celebration.

In the previous editions there have been over 30,000 museum visitors, but thousands more have taken the opportunity to stroll through the lighted streets crowded with people. The whole city is involved: in the main squares you can watch performances of jugglers, magicians, stilt walkers and small theatre companies, but also some special performances.

In the Museum of Arts and Crafts, for example, you can attend a concert performed by an orchestra of 150 items including vacuum cleaners, blenders and washing machines. The program of the night is very articulated and in any location, including along the dock on the banks of the Elbe, events and parties are organized.

The price to visit all the museums is 12 € (8 € for reductions) including travel on public transports. On the dedicated website you can also see which are the cultural routes and the events more suitable for youngers or for families with children.
