This year, Night at the Museum in Barcelona will take place on Saturday 18 May 2019 between 19.00 and 01.00 the following morning. In the space of these six hours, Barcelona will be taken over by culture. Visiting any one of the great museums in the city is always a good idea, whatever time of year you’re here, but throw in some of the magic of this special night to the already wonderful experience of surrounding yourself and enjoying such fantastic art – and the experience becomes an even more perfect plan for a Saturday night in Barcelona.  Once again this year, museums across Europe will throw open their doors overnight to offer the public the chance to enjoy culture at its best, alongside the company and charm of the moonlight.

In this twelfth instalment, more than 60 museums in Barcelona and 80 in the neighbouring provinces will take part along six major cultural routes, from Puerto de Barcelona to Tibidabo and Bèsos to Llobregat. Among them are some of the biggest museums in Barcelona, such as the MNAC, the Picasso Museum and the MACBA. This year, the Botanical Gardens, the Museo Etnològic de Barcelona and The Gaudí Exhibition Centre will also be part of the celebrations.

The main new features for this year are the Creation & Museum spaces, artistic productions interpreted from various disciplines related to the theme of museums themselves. Concerts, performances and activities for all the family will be on offer as part of this Night at the Museum programme in Barcelona.

But culture fans are doubly in luck as, the following day, they’ll have the opportunity to return to enjoy all the greatest art and culture – this time in broad daylight – thanks to International Museum Day, where Barcelona’s biggest museums will once again open to the public free of charge to mark the occasion.

Night at the Museum first began back in 1997. Currently, more than 4,000 museums take part in the initiative in over 40 countries. Undoubtedly, it’s a great opportunity to live and breathe culture at its best, all in a playful, cultural and festive setting, where the night shares the stage with all the different artistic expressionism on offer. Night at the Museum (or Nit dels Museus in Catalan) finds the perfect home in Barcelona, carrying locals and tourists alike away on a journey of discover with the sheer power of art at that hugely exciting and enthralling time – night time.
