Night of the museum is again coming to Croatia and no it’s not the Ben Stiller Hollywood movie. For the eleventh time the night of the museums in Croatia will be held on the 29th of January.
On the 29th of January museums all across Croatia will open their doors for free for visitors. Back in 2005, in only one city and including just six museums, the event was born when the Croatian Museum Association came up with the concept to attract more people to their museums. The “Night at the Museum” is traditionally held on the last Friday of January and has now grown to include 100 Croatian cities and 210 museums, including museums and galleries in Dubrovnik.
In 2005 around 10,000 visitors attended this night of culture and last year this number had grown to 360,000.
During the night of museums 2016 museums throughout the country will be open from 18:00 hours to 01:00 hour after midnight. In Dubrovnik six institutions are included in the night of the museums, including the Home of Marin Drzic, the Archaeological Museum and the Natural History Museum.
