At the Long Night of Museums, more than a hundred museums and cultural institutions exhibit their collections at unusual hours. Visitors not only get the opportunity to take a closer look at paintings, sculptures and installations, but also to witness a number of art performances and concerts.

Berlin's art scene also uses the opportunity to display its art in all its diversity. From 6 pm to 2 am, artists, musicians and dancers produce temporary works of art in unique settings to lighten up the night. The artistic programme includes highlights suitable for all age groups.
