Annually, the impressive diversity of the Berlin museums is shown over one night. Around 80 museums, collections, archives, memorials and exhibitions open their doors for thousands of locals and visitors, till long after midnight. In the altogether 39 nights over a million tickets have been sold. Invented in Berlin in 1997, the Long Night of Museums is the city´s largest cultural event and has been copied many times all over the world. We are responsible for the overall coordination, in close cooperation with all partners, PR and marketing and facilitate all infrastructure and logistics from shuttle-service till visitor guidance. The last Long Night of Museums 2019 had around 40,000 visitors. The next Long Night of Museums will take place on August 28, 2021.

Canceled: Long Night of Museums on August 29, 2020
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Long Night of Museums 2020 unfortunately cannot take place. We support the cancellation of major events by the Berlin Senate to prevent the spread of the virus.
