THE MINISTRY OF CULTURE PUBLISHES THE NATIONAL PROGRAM FOR THE EUROPEAN NIGHT OF MUSEUMS ON MAY 18, 2024.
This year, the European Night of Museums coincides with the International Museum Day, celebrated for the first time in 1978. The purpose of the holiday is to raise awareness of the role of museums in society.
The European Night of Museums was organized for the first time in 2005 by the French Ministry of Culture, and in just a few years the initiative has successfully spread throughout Europe. Bulgarian museums and galleries are already included in its first edition.
In its format, the European Night of Museums is a wide-open program to the largest possible circle of people, who have the opportunity not only to touch the exhibits and works presented by museums and galleries, but also to feel their messages. The concept of the initiative is to reach a large group of people, with an emphasis on the young audience, through the presentation of an unusual and attractive program, which, in addition to the opportunity to get to know the cultural heritage, also offers other cultural events.
The national program to celebrate the traditional European initiative, prepared by the Directorate “Cultural Heritage, Museums and Fine Arts” of the Ministry of Culture includes: thematic exhibitions, concerts and various art events, as well as special events dedicated to the Night. A total of 61 state and municipal museums and art galleries and their affiliates from 25 regions of the country will participate in the initiative, which will welcome visitors with free admission.
Museum Night is open to everyone. Come and share these moments of discovery around the rich cultural heritage and art together with your families and friends!
