The Long Night of Munich Museums: October 2017

Did you indulge in too many beers at Oktoberfest? Have you been spending your Saturdays watching Bayern München games instead of in museums? All can be remedied this weekend – it’s time for the Lange Nacht der Museen.

Around ninety museums take part in the annual event, opening their doors from 7pm to 2am so that you can experience a Stiller-esque Night at the Museum. Entrance costs 15 €, and gives you free travel on the MVG shuttle buses for the evening.

Both established Munich museums and lesser-known institutions are opening their doors for the evening, from Haus der Kunst and the Pinakotheken to the fire service museum and MUCA.

Of particular interest: Die Neue Sammlung – The Design Museum (Barerstraße) is hosting a talk with media artist Tamiko Thiel at 7pm. Then there are several talks on the White Rose movement to be held at the LMU memorial (all in German), and, in a similar vein, the Stadtmuseum is hosting tours titled “National Socialism in Munich”.

One of the sweetest ways to spend the evening is at the botanical gardens – they normally close early evening, but they’ll be open until 2am to let you wander through the greenhouses.
