The Museum Night

The Museum Night is an international event which Latvia also takes part in. It was initiated by the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. The goal of this campaign is to, with the use of democratic and unconventional methods, make the public pay more attention to the cultural heritage that can be found in museums. The Museum Night takes place on the Saturday that is the closest to the International Museum Day (19 May). Events of the campaign take place from 19:00 to 01:00.

Each year the Museum Night has a new motto. Latvia has been participating in the Museum Night since 2005.

Limbaži Museum has been taking part in the Museum Night campaign since 2006, and now it is one of the biggest events in Limbaži culture-wise.
