Night of the Museum took place in Latvia May 18

The annual Night of the Museum took place throughout Latvia on May 18, 2013.

Once every year, people have the unique opportunity to visit various museums at nighttime and for free, which means that the Night of the Museums has arrived. On this night, most of Latvia’s museums organize special events and interesting exhibitions, which have become almost a pilgrimage for many persons who try to visit as many museums as possible.

Participating museums throughout the country will be opening their doors in the early evening to the public and remain open well into the night.

Last year’s theme was the colour of hope and desire - "blue", which kicked off a three-year series of colors as the main theme of the event. In 2014, when Riga is the European Capital of Culture, the color of the Night of the Museums will be - "red amber". However, this year, the theme of the Night of the Museums is "green forest".

The Night of the Museums is an event that takes place in museums all throughout Europe. The event usually takes place from Saturday night to early Sunday morning, and sometimes maybe even longer.
