Another – already 18th – edition of the Long Night of Museums in Warsaw has arrived! One more time, the city will be transformed into a centre of art. This time, the offer prepared by various cultural institutions allows you to enjoy the event in three ways: traditional tours, outdoor events, and online.
This year, specially for you, we have prepared a parade, an exhibition, and rides on historic buses along a sightseeing route encircling the Palace of Culture and Science. Moreover, it is my pleasure to invite you to visit an interactive installation in Defilad Square, which will transport us – literally and figuratively – into the world of art and turn us into protagonists of selected paintings.
Additionally, the programme includes an architecture exhibition at Widok Towers, tours of underground relics of Warsaw’s Old Town, and a silent disco with beats incorporating sampled compositions by W. A. Mozart. We invite you to visit as many as 84 outdoor events, we have prepared numerous attractions for children, and 24 institutions will take part in the event for the first time.
Altogether, 202 institutions active in the capital city have prepared attractions. I thank them all for their effort, for joining the museum celebration, and being open to contemporary audiences and their needs.
I heartily encourage you to participate in this year’s Long Night of Museums. Let us not sleep through an occasion like this.
Mayor of the Capital City of Warsaw
