The Museums Night, taking place this year on May 16, between 18.00 and 04.00, will protest the critical state of the local museums, declining in number and patrimony as many host buildings are being returned to their owners. Each museum will choose an object that will remain covered with a black cloth the night of the event.

Several non-museum institutions are joining the Museums Night at this year’s edition: the Central University Library, Eastwards Prospectus, Eclectico Studio and the Bucharest National Dance Center.

Entrance to event is free. The list of participating museums is available on the event’s website.
