Brno Museum Night is an opportunity to explore the places that you might not have time for during the daytime because of your work schedule and other obligations.
This yearly event gives you a great chance to visit Brno’s museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions. The event takes place on May 19, when participating museums’ doors will be open from 6pm to midnight.
Some of the sites that you can visit are:
Industra (Masná 9)
Industra is a creative hub that brings projects from the Czech Republic and abroad to Brno. Its space combines art, science, education, and innovation.
As for exhibitions, it will be possible to see work of Robert Šalanda and Lukáš Machalický. The programme will also include workshops, lectures, presentations (in Czech), a design shop, and coffee tasting. The choir Illegato will perform from 8pm to 9pm, followed by a DJ set lasting until midnight.

Gallery TIC (Radnická 4)
There will be a relaxed atmosphere in the courtyard of Gallery TIC, where you’ll be able to watch screenings, performances, and a workshop from comfortable seating.
Museum night events are intended to be an accompanying programme to ongoing exhibitions. Find more information here.
