Night of Museums to present events at over 400 locations
Peter Hoppal, state secretary at the ministry of culture and innovations, told a press conference on Wednesday that over 2,500 events were planned in 431 institutions.
The motto for this year’s Night of Museums is tradition remastered, and one of the declared goals is to raise awareness and interest towards public collections and exhibition venues in those who rarely, if ever, would go to a museum, he added.
The city of Szolnok, in central Hungary, will be in focus of this year’s Night of Museums, with 23 locations around the town offering a variety of programmes.
This year Olympic and four-times European champion wrestler Tamas Lorincz will promote the event as a face of the Night of Museums.
