St. Petersburg museums, big and small, open their doors to visitors in the evening and remain open late into the night, as well as prepare a special program: one-day exhibitions, concerts, performances, author tours, workshops, historical reconstructions.
Museum Night is an international event that takes place annually in 42 European countries. Nearly 2,000 museums ‘do not sleep’ once a year, opening their doors to all who are interested to see a museum in an unusual time of the day.
In 2019 Museum Night in St. Petersburg lasts from 6 pm on 18 May till 6 am on 19 May. Some museums have prepared an evening program (from 6 pm till 11 pm) for those who want to go to bed earlier. Night program museums (open from 6 pm till 6 am) invite those who are ready for a long night walk in St. Petersburg.
