16. museum summer night will be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018, from 18.00 to 24.00. About 80 institutions will participate in this year's action, with over 350 programs. Participating museums, galleries and exhibition grounds will open their doors free of charge from late afternoon until midnight and offer a wide range of events for visitors: from guided tours, workshops, presentations, projections, conversations, visits to openings of exhibitions, musical programs, demonstrations and tastings. There will also be occasional and permanent exhibitions. The program is intended for visitors of all ages, families and individuals, those who often visit museums, and especially those who do not even go to bed. Despite the fact that the majority of participants from Ljubljana are going to take place across Slovenia, in more than 50 cities, from Lendava to Portorož and from Jesenice to Metlika.
With a varied and diverse program, we want to present our institutions to our visitors, who preserve and represent cultural heritage, as places for a relaxed, fun and inspiring spending of free time.
