On May 13, the 19th edition of the “Museum Night” event will take place. Museums in Moldova will participate, for the first time, in a joint edition with those in Romania. Cultural and artistic activities can be visited for free. During the event, visitors will have the opportunity to visit museums and admire exhibitions, cultural interventions, and artistic experiments, projections, presentations, performances, workshops, street and indoor animations, concerts, and interactive tours, as stated in a press release by the Chișinău City Hall.
As every year, museums and exhibition spaces will compete to propose surprising programs for all ages.
Over 200 events are already included in the program, many of which are premieres, covering 28 counties in Romania, as well as two districts in the Republic of Moldova and Chișinău.
In Chișinău, the event will take place in five museums: the Art Museum, the History Museum of the City, the National Museum of Romanian Literature, the National Museum of Ethnography, and the National Museum of Moldovan History.
