Night of Museums to offer over 2,000 programmes nationwide

More than 2,200 programmes including concerts, guided exhibitions and interactive events will await visitors at 442 venues nationwide at the Night of Museums on June 24, an official of the ministry of culture and innovation told a press conference on Tuesday.

Deputy state secretary Mate Vincze said last year’s event drew over 300,000 visitors. Veszprem, in western Hungary, will be in the focus of this year’s programme, with nearly 500 programmes at 30 venues, he added.

Ten institutes will offer programmes presenting the work of world-renowned mathematician John von Neumann, who was born 120 years ago, he said.

Beloved soprano Erika Miklosa will be the event’s ambassador, he added.
