Today we celebrate the Museum’s International Day and the Nits dels Museus. From 7:00 pm to 1:00 am you will be able to access a long list of museums in Barcelona completely fee and enjoy lots of shows and exhibitions.
It was the year 1977 when the International Council of Museums (ICOM) got together in Moscow and decides to celebrate every May 18th the Museum’s International Day. Every year they propose a theme and this year’s will be “Museums (memory + creativity) = SOCIAL PROGRESS”.
Within the context of this celebration in many European countries also takes place La Nit dels Museus. Most museums in Barcelona open their doors at an unusual time, from 7:00 pm to 1:00 pm to surprise us all with atypical guided tours, presentations, concerts, projections and all kind of cultural entertainments.
Among all the museums that will participate you will find the MACBA, the CCCB, the Picasso Museum, the Antoni Tapiès Foundation and La Pedrera, from where you can reach the most cultural luxury hotel in Barcelona. We wait for you to have some tapas and drink a few coctels at our Roca Bar.
