Museums at Night, which explodes into life from 15 – 17 May 2014, is an annual UK-wide festival which seeks to encourage visitors into museums, galleries and heritage sites by throwing their doors open after hours and putting on special evening events.
Co-ordinated by non-profit cultural publishing organisation Culture24, Museums at Night is an opportunity for the cultural and heritage sector to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media.
Museums at Night ties in with the European campaign, La Nuit Des Musées, which takes place on Saturday 17th May 2014. In the UK, to allow venues greater flexibility, it will run over Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th May. The date is significant as it's the weekend nearest to 18 May, International Museums Day.
