Night of Museums 2021 To Be Held Online and Outdoors

January 9, 2021 – The end of January in Croatia is traditionally marked by the famous Night of Museums event. This year, due to the coronavirus pandemic and special epidemiological measures, the event will take place in a digital edition but also outdoors.

Hina reports that the applications for the 16th Night of Museums, which will be held on January 29, 2021, are now open. The events, whose topic this year is "Museum tasks in times of crisis," will be held online, except in those locations and facilities that may be outdoors, but following the prescribed epidemiological measures. Considering the circumstances, the event will be held under the name "Digital Museum Night".

Night of Museums in Croatia began in 2005 with several Zagreb museums. Today, it has grown into the most important event of Croatian museums and one of the most significant cultural events in Croatia. The Croatian Museum Association, the organizer of the event, reminds us that the past 15 years of Night of Museums have been marked by a mass visit to museums, which exceeded 300,000 visits during one night.

As the Night of Museums event has completely taken on the characteristics of an unavoidable cultural event in Croatia, the organizers of its 16th edition will try to enable the loyal audience to enjoy the prepared events, mostly virtually.

Due to the specific situation, there will be no program booklets, posters, or banners, as all registered programs will be visible on the event's digital platform. As a longtime partner, Croatian Radio Television will prepare a special show on its first channel, using material from the digital platform.

Since the first city edition in 2005 with six Zagreb museums, Museum Night in Croatia has recorded almost 3.5 million visitors. Last year, 240,540 visitors enjoyed the museum exhibitions in more than 250 locations in 110 cities and municipalities in Croatia.

Besides almost all museum institutions in Croatia, interesting programs attracted many visitors to other heritage institutions, archives, libraries, cultural centers, religious communities, associations, and educational institutions.

You can register your participation by January 21, 2021.

Split Museum Night: Where Will You Visit this Year?

January 30, 2019 - As most of you are probably aware, the ‘Long Night of Museums’, also known as Museum Night, returns this Friday, February 1, 2019. The 14th edition of this favorite event will be held throughout Croatia under the theme "Museums - Innovations and Digital Future”.

“Croatian museums use state-of-the-art technologies in their everyday practices, which involves an innovative and creative view of the museum’s possibilities and greater availability of museum content to new segments of museum audiences, through various digital platforms, mobile applications, tools, VR (Virtual Reality, AE (Augmented Reality), and many other technological innovations," reads the Museum Night website. 

The Croatian Museum Association (HMD) called on museums, galleries and similar institutions to propose their programmes on this topic by  January 11. 

Many establishments in Split signed up to participate in this Friday’s event, including the Archaeological Museum, Ethnographic Museum, Meštrović Gallery, Škola Gallery, HGK County Chamber Split, the Croatian-French Association, City Museum of Split, Museum of Croatian Archaeological Monuments, the Split University Library, Poljud Stadium, the Starry Village Mosor, and others.

You can find the full program of each participating location on the Museum Night’s official website

Last year, Museum Night was held in over 200 museums and similar institutions in about 100 cities and towns across Croatia under the title "Museums and Sports - Faster, Higher, Stronger".

Fourteen years ago, when this event was organized in Croatia for the first time, only six museums in Zagreb joined the campaign.

The initiative was launched in Germany in 1997, followed by France. As of 2005, it became a Europe-wide cultural event in which museums and cultural institutions in an area cooperate to remain open late into the night to attract visitors.

In Croatia, admission to all Museum Night venues is free. The event lasts from 6 pm to 1 am.
