Fans, mark your calendars: the next Groninger Museumnacht will happen on Saturday 12 September. Museums in Groningen will stay open into the evening for the fourth edition of this festive event, which sells out every year. Tickets go on sale this summer.
Along with the exhibitions, nighttime museum-hoppers can enjoy a varied programme of music, unique workshops and fascinating speakers. Groninger Museumnacht is designed to be a diverse, inclusive event where everyone feels welcome. In just a few years, it’s become one of the city’s biggest cultural events, drawing more than 3,500 visitors every year. It’s particularly popular with a young audience; most visitors are between 20 and 35. Many foreign students seize the opportunity to explore the city’s wealth of cultural attractions.
New on the itinerary: Storyworld at Forum Groningen
This year, visitors can check out a new museum on Museumnacht. Storyworld unlocks the secrets of top storytellers and showcases great Dutch and foreign comics, animation and games. You can even try out various elements and techniques from comics, animation and games yourself.
Groninger Museumnacht is a joint project of the Groninger Museum, the Northern Maritime Museum, GRID Grafisch Museum, Storyworld and the University Museum.
