"Museum Night 2013" and the special Life around route

This year, “Museum Night” for late visitors will open more than 80 exhibition sites, libraries and even the Summer Garden. In addition to him, the Shostakovich Philharmonic Society, the necropolis of the Museum of Urban Sculpture, Skorokhod and 12 other places will take part in the international campaign for the first time. All of them have prepared for visitors a special program dedicated to the general theme of "Discovery".

The museum festival will begin on May 18 at 6 pm and will last until 6 in the morning. This year, moving between museums has become even easier. In addition to special buses operating on five museum routes, night buses will also take the flight, duplicating metro lines, and a shuttle car will ride between Sportivnaya and Admiralteyskaya. Tickets - one-time and single tickets for 350 rubles - can be bought on the spot or in advance at any of the participating museums.

"Museum Night" is an annual action. To make museum programs new every year, and it would be interesting to watch them even for those who already visited the same museum last year, we made the festival themed. This year's theme is Discovery. After all, many unexpected discoveries are associated with museum exhibits and collections. The theme allows museums to talk about discoveries that are important for science, progress, history; discoveries that have changed our understanding of the world or the course of everyday life.

Like last year, the city’s Internet newspaper, Life around, drew up its Night of Museums program. In 2013, we selected the most interesting sites from the newly joined the action.

Creative work by students of the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences of St. Petersburg State University will be exhibited in space: photo and video objects and installations created as part of the Art Nouveau and Postmodern Art courses. Finally, avant-garde short films by Lynch and other directors will be shown.

The action dedicated to the International Museum Day was born in Berlin in 1997. Soon it spread throughout Europe, and reached St. Petersburg in 2008. The last two years, St. Petersburg's “Night of Museums” has been thematic: in 2011, it was dedicated to the 50th anniversary of Gagarin’s flight into space, and in 2012, to St. Petersburg secrets. Then over 12,000 people joined the art within 12 hours. Information about all the participants of the St. Petersburg action this year can be studied on the project website.
