Now in its third year, this multi-institution cultural experience returns on Thursday 21 February 2019.
THE MUSEUM COMES ALIVE
Besides the usual museum attractions, attendees can look forward to performances, music, food and a unique vibe while checking out the museums in a new light after dark. The full programme of events must still be finalised, so keep your eyes peeled for updates.
