“From Comana to Iasi, from Bucharest to Aiud , from Craiova to Dorohoi or Cluj-Napoca, the Night Long of Museum this year is touring all corners of the country and it is very creative, effervescent and inclusive. We have over 180 artistic activities all through the country and we are very happy that, after an extremely complicated year, when we were mostly online, we can now invite the public and communities to tens of welcoming cultural events, like in the old days”, said Dragoş Neamu, manager of the Long Night of the Museums.

Initiated 17 years ago by the Ministry of Culture and Communication in France, under the patronage of the Council of Europe and UNESCO, the Long Night of the Museums event is held at European level on an annual basis.
