Museum night Dubrovnik 2015

The 15th Museum Night will take place on the last day of January. It will be dedicated to the important anniversaries of Croatian museums, most of which are located in the capital, Zagreb. Throughout Croatia, many visitors will enjoy the cultural offer. As Zagreb Tourist Board writes, there is a continuous rise in the number of visitors to Zagreb’s museums from Croatia and abroad owing to their interesting programmes. The situation is the same in Dubrovnik and many other Croatian cities with rich cultural history.

Daily visits hardly compare to the number of visitors on Museum Night, they continue. On that day there are long queues from early evening, and museums repay visitors for their patience with numerous special programmes and workshops. 31 January this year will be no different. The topic of the 15th edition of Museum Night is big anniversaries of Croatian museums, two of them – the 140th anniversary of the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb and 200 years of the Archaeological Museum in Split.
