Museum Night 2015

This year's "Museum Night" campaign is scheduled for 30 January, when Zagreb museums  offer rich program with numerous events, thematic guidance through exhibitions and very pleasant surprises for their visitors.

By celebrating the "Museum Night" Zagreb museums have joined the European campaign aimed at promoting the quality and diversity of cultural heritage, which is indispensable in the promotion of tourism as well. The "Museum Night" campaign, which has been held in Croatia since 2005, this year marks its 10-year jubilee.

Croatian Museum Association announced "Museum Night 2015" under the name “Inventions and discoveries – Nikola Tesla universal mind” for 30 January from 6 pm to 1 am with free entry to all programs. The theme of ”Museum Night 2015“ is conceptually connected with the last year’s manifestation and is aimed at continuous affirmation of great names of Croatian culture, art and science and their interpolation into cultural-touristic programs. The manifestation is supported by Croatian museums, City of Zagreb, Technical Museum Zagreb, as well as institutions connected to Tesla’s birthplace – City of Gospić, Museum of Lika in Gospić, and Memorail Center “Nikola Tesla” in Smiljan.

Over the years, the “Museum Night” events have become extremely popular, with around 360 000 visitors in over 200 Croatian museums in 2014. What is truly valuable is the fact that other cultural institutions, archives, libraries, book stores and clubs, as well as local communities have started to join the event and offer various interesting programs in the night dedicated to art and culture.
