This year the Museum night in St. Petersburg is expected to be at the night of 21-22 of May. It will last all night long from 6 p.m. till 6 a.m.
“Space” will be the main theme to honour the 50th anniversary of Gargarin’s journey into the cosmos. Both – major and manor museums – will be welcoming visitors. The event executives are preparing special programs such as workshops, author tours, plays, concerts and many others. Tickets can be purchased at any one of the participating museums and are valid for all other locations throughout the night.
In 2009 over 47 museums and 64 000 people took part in the event.
