The 17th edition of Museum Night will take place on January 28, 2022, and this year's theme is "Museums - between the real and the digital".
The organizer, the Croatian Museum Association (HMD), said that cultural institutions were forced to adapt to the new reality, with most of the events being moved to digital communication channels.
All Museum Night programmes will be available via digital channels.
In the pre-pandemic years, Museum Night saw mass visits to museums, with the number of visits in one night exceeding 300,000. Last year, nearly all events were organized online.
The HMD organized the first Museum Night in 2005, with the participation of only a handful of museums in Zagreb. Since then, it has evolved into a national event, attracting 3,635,127 visitors. It takes place on the last Friday in January, from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m., and admission to museums is free.
