October 15 2011: The Long Night of Museums in Munich

More than a hundred locations open to the public from 7 pm to 2 am. Not only museums but also clubs and spaces where to listen to music of all genres. This is the Long Night of Museums, which will be held on October 15 in Munich (Lange Nacht der Münchner Museen.) The program also includes a long… afternoon, from 2 to 6 pm, with initiatives, shows, tours and concerts mainly dedicated to children.

The night of Saturday, October 15, in Munich, all awake until late at night, to attend an event that has attracted over 20,000 people in 2010. From the end of August, at the venues involved in the event, tickets are available at a cost of 15 Euros, which will allow access to all museums and shows.

Each ticket is valid for an adult plus a child aged 4 to 14. Ticket for the matinee performances for children cost 2.5 Euros. For further information on where to purchase tickets you can send an email to: [email protected]

During the Long Night of Museums, a special shuttle service takes visitors along the route of museums and streets of the old town where you can attend the shows and concerts. The shuttles depart from a terminus in Odeonsplatz: from 7pm, every 10 minutes. Since that time, according to your programs, you can get on and off the shuttles to get to the museums or other specific locations involved in the initiative.

On the dedicated website, 5 main routes are recommended, but in the end the best advice is to ‘drift’ without a goal on the shuttles, going up and down without any preconceived destination. Someone likes to enjoy the Long Night of Museums on foot or by bicycle: the places where the events are held are quite concentrated in downtown, so it’s easy to reach them on foot.

Until this year the Night of Museums was held only once within 12 months, but it will be doubled starting from 2012. The administration has in fact already scheduled the date for what will be the Long Night of Music: April 28. For the occasion more than 400 concerts will be organized. Single ticket costs 18 Euros.
