The Night of Museums in Düsseldorf is an ideal opportunity for enthusiasts to discover and enthuse the diverse local cultural landscape. This year, forty museums and galleries open their doors on one evening to welcome and entertain. Even the state parliament building becomes a venue.
Exhibitions are as diverse as the local institutions. They can include paintings, sculptures, photography, architecture, design, music, natural history, film and video installations. Visitors are sometimes encouraged to participate in various activities, such as guided tours, workshops, performances and projects.
A single inexpensive ticket enables entry and use of special busses. Venues are open from 7pm to midnight and beyond.
