Note to readers: This post was initially scheduled to run in June in advance of the original Museum Night event which was postponed due to the flooding that occurred in Prague. We are pleased to see that the events listed here will take place as previously scheduled. Enjoy!

 

 

Taking place on September 14, Prague’s annual Museum Night (Pražská muzejní noc) celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013. For those not acquainted with this enchanted evening, it’s the one night a year when participating museums and galleries stay up late, their doors opening at 7pm and closing around 1am. The event is made all the more festive by the many related social events, activities, and happenings that take place all around town, plus complementary transport as well as free entry to a number of cultural monuments. This year will see a number of new venues added to the already impressive list of museums, including The Václav Havel Library and Kino Ponrepo. What’s more, the range of kid-friendly workshops on tap this year truly impresses—a robot making competition at the National Pedagogic Museum, bow-shooting and Indian headdress making at Antonín Dvořák Museum, and the chance to drive an historical trolley at the National Technical Museum to name just a few. I can’t think of any parents who wouldn’t be up for a night on the town, no babysitter required; and I can’t think of anyone at all who wouldn’t be up for bow-shooting or driving a tram! (Note that the website’s “For Kids” section conveniently indicates age appropriateness for activities.) While museum night does indeed promise plenty of magic, it also promises long-lines. We suggest using the site’s Museum planning tools to your advantage.
