About the Long Night



It was a wonderful, small idea that since 1997 has grown into a huge, city-wide event. The Long Night of Museums belongs to Berlin in the same way that the Fernsehturm and Kudamm belong to it, and the city continues to amaze and astound those who participate. Once a year, up to 100 Berliner museums, collections, archives, memorials and exhibition houses open their doors until well past midnight. During these remarkable hours, the capital's multifaceted cultural landscape presents itself in all of its impressive diversity on an area of almost 400 km². Various shuttle bus routes connect the participating institutions. Among the visitors of all ages, there are many passionate museum goers who use the Long Night as a special opportunity to discover new museums and locations. Museum visits are generally made while in the company of others and this community experience is especially true during the Long Night, where only every tenth visitor is travelling alone. The Long Night of Museums is also a family event and the museums are always working to offer new age-appropriate programs for the young and very young. Special programs, guided tours and hands-on activities attract the imaginative to plunge into the adventure of museums.

The Long Night of Museums — a joint event organized by the Berlin Museums and Kulturprojekte Berlin — takes place once a year on the Saturday night before International Museum Day.
