European Night at the Museum – May 19


The Accademia Gallery has just confirmed it will be open this weekend as part of the “European Night at the Museum” event sponsored by the EU’s European Council and ICOM designed to promote a European cultural identity across its member states. This means that this weekend on Saturday evening the Accademia will be open from 7pm to 10pm as an extra special opening.

Entrance to the museum during these extra hours on Saturday will cost a symbolic 1 euro (those who enter free or reduced generally will pay nothing). You CANNOT book tickets ahead for visits during these hours.

This weekend is also the 3rd edition of the Festa dei Musei, or Museum Festival, an Italian event organized by MiBACT, the Italian Ministry of Cultural Affairs and Tourism. You can read more about the events organized for the Festa on this link.
