International Museum Day is celebrated on May 18 and the Night of Museums takes place on the Saturday closest to this date. The Night of Museums is an annual event that has become more and more popular in Estonia, both among museums and visitors. On this night, museums are open until late and entrance is free for all.
The University of Tartu Art Museum invites visitors to marvel at the permanent exhibition and the temporary exhibitions on display at the time. A special programme is put together in order to make the Night of Museums an even more exciting experience.
