It’s Saturday, 16 April and it is usually a day when you decide to go and have a blast at a club. You can do that! No one is standing in your way! But what if there was something else going on that evening? What if there was something as outrageously enjoyable as a cool and captivating party and you didn’t even know about it? Well, that’s why tba is here.
“Die lange Nacht der Museen” is a “one-night-event” on 16 April. Between 6 pm and 2 am you can visit any participating museum. You have a marvellous choice between guided tours, special exhibitions and a huge variety of cool cultural events. Even for someone who’s not into ancient history and very old artefacts, which are lying in some glass boxes, you can join in music events, dancing groups and movie events. Museums even offer a culinary program. So you see, the variety of choices is immense, all you need to do is go and enjoy!
But that’s not the only reason why this event is better than a club with loud and ear-smashing house music: First of all, you will be able to see a different kind of program, since it is specially designed for that evening. Secondly, you have the opportunity to visit any museum at night – which should be beyond awesome, don’t you think!?
The only condition you have to fulfil is to buy a ticket for 12,- €, with a discount you’d pay only 8,- €. But here comes the interesting part: Buying this ticket, you don’t just purchase a free entry for EVERY museum taking part in this, but also a right to use the museum’s night buses and a free use of the HVV-route in order to get to your museum of choice and back home. This “free ride” lasts from Saturday 5 pm till Sunday 10 am. So, it’s also a good opportunity to take some friends and family members along.
I know that I’m going to visit “Das Archäologische Museum Hamburg – Helms Museum“. But you should decide for yourself where you want to go. Discover that museums are not only for grandparents and their grandchildren and be able to brag about your sophisticated leisure time activities.
