The idea for the Long Night of Museums was inaugurated in Berlin in 1997. It was so successful that in the interim this concept has been copied by nearly all the larger cities in Germany and many abroad. Museums open their doors to the public at unusual hours, while frequently highlighting another side of their traditional offers and programmes. In Berlin a single ticket is valid for visits to nearly 80 museums, including renowned collections, palaces, exciting historical locations, planetariums and multimedia exhibitions.
