Museum Night is an annual cultural event that takes place on a Saturday evening in May when dozens of museums and memory institutions across Estonia open their doors.
On Museum Night, the participating museums, memory institutions and places to visit are open 18.00–23.00.
On Museum Night the entry fee everywhere is €1.
Museum Night 2022 is titled „Dreams in the Night“. What do museums dream about and what do the communities around the museums dream about? What is a museum of dreams like? We invite both the museums and the visitors to dream and act, amongst other things, in the name of greener, more sustainable, accessible and inclusive museums and the whole world.
Museum Night’s main coordinator is the Estonian Museum Association, which wishes, now within the framework of the Museum Night and in the future, to pay attention to socially significant themes that the museums deal with on a daily basis, and through which they contribute to society and the environment.
Museum Night’s cooperation partner in 2022 is the charity foundation My Dream Day. Participants at all the Museum Night's events are able to give donations, which can make the dream of a child with a serious or chronic disease come true. We do some good together, and help the excitement and jolly mood of Museum Night reach the children who cannot take part in these events.
Museum Night is amusing, instructive and offers new experiences! Come and let us dream together!
