Long Night of Museums

The Long Night of Museums in Berlin

Looking forward to the next Long Night? 8/27/16, 6 p.m. - 2 a.m.

The next Long Night of Museums will take place at the end of next August, inviting to explore Berlin’s vast museum landscape. World famous collections and peculiar museums, art and technic museums, astronomical observatories and bunkers open their doors at unusual hours and provide unusual experiences and encounters. Save the date!

All Museums of Berlin – One Ticket
The Long Night of Museums was created in 1997 and imitated worldwide. With museums, from the classical temples of culture located on Museums Island to the Trabi Museum, from the private me Collectors Room to the Stasi Museum on Normannenstraße, this nocturnal event has something for everyone: the art fans, who can watch and learn how paintings are created, those interested in history, who can meet with contemporary witnesses, the curious discoverers, who can roam about artists’ workshops, factories and bunkers, and the pleasure seekers, who want to be entertained with music and singing. Of course there are activities for children and young people, who can look through giant telescopes or emboss their own coins.

As Guest in the Berlin Museums
All Museums are preparing a warm welcome for their guests. In many museums, the guests are personally greeted, in others they are explicitly asked for their opinion and in still other museums, guests are invited to birthday celebrations, tea ceremonies or Hawala celebrations. The State Museums of Berlin offers customized tours for different types of visitors: the urgent and hasty visitor will receive a first impression of a few chosen works; the experts will be surprised by details that they had previously overlooked; the inquisitive guests will be captivated by curious and incredible stories.

Tours by Bus or Foot
With the help of an overview map and the assistance of friendly guides, every visitor can, on a Saturday evening between 6pm and 2am, explore the participating museums through either riding the shuttle buses to specific museums around the city, or by travelling on foot through a chosen district of Berlin. Between the Lustgarten, Nikolaiviertel and Auguststraße, there is a variety of large and small museums to explore, as well as around the Checkpoint Charlie. For those who need a break, there are many places offered to relax, drink something and observe the hustle and bustle.

Price: 18€/ reduced 12€, children up to 12 years old free entrance.
