The doors of museums and galleries of the city are thrown open free of charge for one night only

The doors of Zagreb's museums and galleries - and those in all of Croatia's major cities - are thrown open, free of charge, for one night only at this incredibly (and increasingly) popular annual event. Most institutions take part, and frequently one-off exhibitions and concerts are organised especially for the event. The main theme of 2019's Night of the Museums, which is the event's 14th annual occurrence, is 'Museums – Innovations and Digital Future.' In Zagreb, shuttle buses run between the main locations. Over 200 museums, galleries and other cultural institutions in 100 Croatian cities and towns now take part. Attracting big crowds who create a vibrant atmosphere, it can be a hugely enjoyable evening and for many, a highlight of the year.
