Museum at night

The Long Night of Munich Museums
Saturday, October 20, 2018, 7 pm until 2 am
Museums in Munich

The third Saturday night in October means in Munich there is a great buzz in the city: thousands go roaming the city with little booklets clutched in their hands, buses bursting with people are cruising the streets and lights in museums all over town never seem to want to go out... it's the Long Night of Munich Museums. Around 90 Munich museums, collections, galleries and churches have an open invitation out to visitors from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. to experience art and culture, science and technology in a different light. A unique variety of exhibitions, guided tours (most in German though!), concerts and other special projects will be on offer. Besides the large Munich museums with world-renowned collections, a number of smaller museums and art projects will also be enticing visitors to their doors.

The Long Night Ticket
It costs 15 € and is valid for admission to all participating venues for one adult and up to four children (4-14 years old) for the evening programme and for the MVG Shuttle Buses. It is also valid as a ticket for one person on the day of the event for all public transit services within the zones of the MVV Transit Authority (from noon on October 20th to 8 a.m. on October 21). The Long Night Ticket will be available from mid-September at all participating venues and all partners. Additional fees will be payable at other advance sales offices. Online orders are possible up to 10 days before the event here.

Afternoon Children's Programme

For kids, the Long Night will already kick off at two in the afternoon (2-6 pm). To find out what children can look forward to at 18 venues around town, check here.

Suitable For Guests from abroad?
Guests to Munich are often unsure as to whether the Museum Night is also something for those who don't speak German. Of course it is! Because of the wide variety of the programmes on offer, speaking German is not a prerequisite for enjoying the Long Night. Many of the exhibits speak for themselves, some of the information at the venues is available in English. Therefore, the most important thing you can bring along is curiosity and a desire for discovery!
