Prague’s Museum Night is an unusual and exciting way for night owls to get their cultural fix this summer. Now in its ninth year, the event will see more than 100,000 people explore art and heritage after hours, as over 60 participating museums and cultural institutions throw open their doors from 7pm until 1am on Saturday 9th June.
Prague Museum Night always sees a broad range of participants, and the 2012 event is no exception. Expect to see exciting new additions to the programme including the AMoYa Gallery, the Prague Botanical Garden, the House of National Minorities and contemporary art centre the Meet Factory.
A Vast Array of Things to See and Do
There will be the usual array of lectures, concerts, film screenings, competitions and unusual spectacles, all enhancing the exhibitions and monuments already on display at participating venues.
Prague Museum Night always caters well for its younger visitors, with many venues providing a special programme for children. As usual, virtually all of the participating venues are offering free admission, making this a great way to take in the cultural hotspots of this beautiful city without blowing your budget. A free shuttle bus will be laid on to get visitors around town, but do plan your evening well and anticipate queues for some of the more popular attractions.
