Moscow Meets May Museum Madness

Posted: May. 15th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse
Day of Cultural Heritage, Moscow

Moscow will be the place to be on May 18th as hundreds of thousands pour onto the streets for Museum Night, a cultural festival that brings out the finest aspects of Russian entertainment, history, and atmosphere. Coupled with the Day of Cultural Heritage, a traveler hungry for a real taste of Moscow would be loathe to miss this golden opportunity.

Up to a million people will head to the streets of Moscow on May 18 in search of culture, stopping by museums, estates, squares and old factories that are opening their doors for free.

Museum Night is in its seventh year, despite often-frantic complaints about overcrowding. This year, it will be bigger and longer than before, as the day begins at 10 a. m. Saturday and stretches overnight till six in the morning.

It would probably take more than a year to visit all of the places open late this Saturday, let alone take part in everything happening.
