Are you ready for a night of museums with various musical, literary, and plastic proposals for 2022?
This Wednesday, February 23, you can enjoy more than 40 museums at night.
With the aim of disseminating heritage and attracting new audiences to the city’s artistic and cultural venues, the Night of Museums initiative was born. It is a concept that was carried out by Ana Isabel Salazar, who thought of the idea when she realized that most of the museums in Mexico City closed at an early hour and people such as students or professionals were not able to attend the exhibits.
The Night of Museums is organized on the last Wednesday of each month. More than 40 cultural venues participate, which open their doors from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., in order to offer the public a different vision of the common tour of a museum.
This nocturnal option to visit museums seeks to provide information about some exhibitions. In addition, the Night of Museums organizes workshops, recitals, talks, tributes, guided tours, among other things. It is worth mentioning that most of the activities are free, so this Wednesday you will have no excuse to stay without going to visit the Night of Museums.
We recommend you follow and consult the Night of Museums fanpage for the details of activities.
