English TextOn Saturday 13th June, 2015 various museums, galleries and other cultural institutions will not close but stay open into the night. For the seventh time Ostrava will participate in an international festival with its Ostrava Museum Night. From 17.00 until midnight 37 state, non-profit and private organisations, which help form the cultural life in Ostrava, will present themselves.

This year will bring us also new participants. People’s Conservatory and Music School Ostrava will introduce its activities to us and will offer chance to try several interesting artistic techniques. Secondary Art School and a Grammar School has prepared a wide selection of artistic activities in the studios of individual subjects, screenings of student films and animations, tour of the school, with a surprise at the end. The Tearoom Rashmi will have an opening to an exhibition, author readings, theatre improvisation, recital and children’s workshops. An exhibition The Magical House of Luxembourg in the Science and Technology Centre, which presents facsimiles of the famous library of Wenceslaus IV, will also have free entry.

Owing to the booking system you can avoid the long queues this year too. The symbol “REZERVACE” (booking) will be next to the activities that are convenient to book in advance. All the other information is available on the website www.ostravskamuzejninoc.cz and on Facebook.
