The Long Night of Museums offers a spectacular programme all evening long all over Berlin. Exhibitions, productions, concerts, discussion salons and other exciting events make the museum experience something special. The wide-ranging programme has something for everyone: The vocal heroes of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra in front of the PalaisPopulaire, a contemporary witness stage at the Stasi headquarters, a live performance at the Urban Nation Museum or the 150th anniversary of the Museum of Communication with a magic show and Time Travel tours are just a small excerpt.
Numerous museums are taking part in the Long Night of Museums for the first time. New participants include large and small, central and decentralised, well-known and lesser-known: from Hamburger Bahnhof to Stabi Kulturwerk and Samurai Museum Berlin to Futurium, TimeRide Berlin and many more.
Visiting all museums is possible with only one ticket. Supersaver tickets will be available from 1 August 2022. From this day on, the complete programme will also be available online at www.lange-nacht-der-museen.de
