The European Night of Museums was created in 2005 by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. On this occasion, the closing time of the museums is postponed to approximately one in the morning, which allows the public to visit the participating museums by night, for free (from 8 p.m. onwards). This year will celebrate the fourteenth edition of the European night of Museums.

Since 2011, International Council of Museums has been sponsoring the European Night of Museums, which is held every year on the Saturday closest to the International Museum Day. This year the European night of the Museums will take place during the night of 19th to the 20th of May. By welcoming the public during the night, museums invite them to visit the collections in a different, unusual and more sensory way. Many animations are offered during this event which is attended by numerous young people and families.
