On Friday, May 13, 2022, after a two-year pandemic break, the Krakow Night of Museums will take place. This is the most anticipated event in the Krakow Nights series.

Krakow’s Night of Museums

The Krakow Night of Museums is a unique event during which museums open their gates for free (or a symbolic zloty) for tourists thirsty for history, art and knowledge.

The Krakow Night of Museums is organized as part of the Krakow Nights series. The Art House Cinema Night is behind us. Before us is the Night of Museums, Night of Dance, Night of Theaters, Night of Jazz, Night of Cracovia Sacra and Night of Poetry.
