Museum Night is back for another year. So, this Saturday, 15 May, from 7 pm until 1 am, forty museums and exhibition centres will be open for free. The Museum Night programme for this year has been organised around six areas of the city, each area groups together several centres and museums that are close to each other. The first runs from Montjuïc to Hospitalet, the second from Eixample to Gràcia, the third from the Barri Gòtic to the sea, the fourth from Raval to the port, the fifth covers Badalona, Glòries and Ciutadella, and the sixth Pedralbes, Esplugues and Cornellà.

Among eleven new centres and museums that are to open their collections and temporary exhibitions to the public for the night are Arts Santa Mònica, the Museu Agbar de les Aigües, the Centre Cultural Metropolità Tecla Sala, the Museu Can Tinturé and the Museu Egipci de Barcelona.

This is not all Museum Night has to offer because special activities are being organised, such as concerts, magic shows, dance, theatre, guided tours, storytelling, talks and poetry (coinciding with Poetry Week).

These activities are aimed at everybody and include the farewell party at the Museu de Ciències Naturals de Barcelona, a way of celebrating the start of a new era at its future home in the “Blue Building” at the Forum.

Another event open to everyone is a joint activity involving all the centres and museums at the same time. It is a flash mob which requires everyone to remain quiet for three minutes from midnight.
