Hina reports that the applications for the 16th Night of Museums, which will be held on January 29, 2021, are now open. The events, whose topic this year is “Museum tasks in times of crisis,” will be held online, except in those locations and facilities that may be outdoors, but following the prescribed epidemiological measures. Considering the circumstances, the event will be held under the name “Digital Museum Night”.

Night of Museums in Croatia began in 2005 with several Zagreb museums. Today, it has grown into the most important event of Croatian museums and one of the most significant cultural events in Croatia. The Croatian Museum Association, the organizer of the event, reminds us that the past 15 years of Night of Museums have been marked by a mass visit to museums, which exceeded 300,000 visits during one night.

As the Night of Museums event has completely taken on the characteristics of an unavoidable cultural event in Croatia, the organizers of its 16th edition will try to enable the loyal audience to enjoy the prepared events, mostly virtually.

Due to the specific situation, there will be no program booklets, posters, or banners, as all registered programs will be visible on the event’s digital platform. As a longtime partner, Croatian Radio Television will prepare a special show on its first channel, using material from the digital platform.

Since the first city edition in 2005 with six Zagreb museums, Museum Night in Croatia has recorded almost 3.5 million visitors. Last year, 240,540 visitors enjoyed the museum exhibitions in more than 250 locations in 110 cities and municipalities in Croatia.

Besides almost all museum institutions in Croatia, interesting programs attracted many visitors to other heritage institutions, archives, libraries, cultural centers, religious communities, associations, and educational institutions.

You can register your participation by January 21, 2021.
