Museum Night

Museum Night (Nit dels Museus)

The European Museum Day is approaching, and in Barcelona, Museum Night, or Nit dels Museus, is a cultural event for all audiences. The city’s museums will open their doors for free, allowing visitors to explore both their permanent and temporary exhibitions with the aim of raising awareness about the role of museums in society.

Museums that usually offer kid-friendly programming, such as the Museum of Medieval Art, the Archaeology Museum of Catalonia, or the CCCB, will have family visits and workshops throughout the day.

Museum Night 2024 in Barcelona will take place on Saturday, May 18th. Nearly 90 institutions in the city and municipalities in the metropolitan area will join this cultural proposal. Therefore, towns such as Badalona, Cornellà, Esplugues, l’Hospitalet, Sant Adrià, Sant Joan Despí, and Santa Coloma will also open their museums.

Although Barcelona is full of museums and free exhibitions throughout the year (especially on the first Sunday of each month), during the Night of Museums, cultural offerings are expanded with a special program.

Most museums offer activities, live performances, or family workshops, some of which require prior reservation. Specifically, more than 171 activities have been scheduled between 7 p.m. on Saturday and 1 a.m. on Sunday. However, to avoid queues, it is recommended to reserve tickets for the most popular museums to avoid overcrowding.
