80 Museums and 100 Shows for Free the Night of May 14, until 2am, in Rome!

The seventh edition of the European Night of Museums will offer free music, exhibitions, guided tours and tastings in museums all over Europe.

Let’s see what Rome has planned for this special event. Last year, with an attendance of 150,000 people, Rome’s La Notte dei Musei was one of the most popular in the Old Continent. We hope it will repeat itself tomorrow.

From 8pm until 2am, last admission at 1am, 80 museums will open their doors and 100 shows, concerts and events will entertain visitors throughout the city.

A complete list of all the events in Rome is here while all the museums open for the occasion can be found here.


We think that these are some of the most interesting things to do tomorrow night.

Seeing Ara Pacis at night is always very fascinating and if you like dance, from 9 to midnight there will be a three-artist company performing inside the museum.

If opera is your passion, then head for the Musei Capitolini where music from Carmen, don Juan, and the Barber of Seville will be played at 10:30pm. 11:30pm and 12:30am.

Classical music will be hosted at the Museo Romano delle Terme di Diocleziano, right behind Piazza della Repubblica. At 9pm, 10pm and 11pm the Tor Vergata University Orchestra will execute music by Vivaldi and Haendel.

Jazz lovers could attend the Lisa Stone Quartet concert in the Museo Venanzo Crocetti in via Cassia 492 at 9pm and 10pm.

The Museo di Roma in Palazzo Braschi will be the venue of “Portrait of Brazil”, a voice and guitar concert at 9pm, 10:30pm and midnight. While Argentina will be on stage with a show in Hadrian’s Temple at 9:30pm and 11pm. Israeli art will please the crowds in the Casa dell’Architettura (piazza Manfredo Fanti 47) with Mosh Ben Ari’s concert and in Macro Pelanda with “Heroes” a dance show by Oded Grof and Yossi Berg. The Romanian Academy (piazza Jose de San Martin 1) will istead host a traditional Moldovan fast-beat music concert at 9pm and 11pm.

Italian folk music can be enjoyed at the Central Institute of Demoethnoantropology and at the National Museum of Italian Folks Arts and Traditions, both in Piazza Marconi 8.

Always in the EUR area, the Planetary and Astronomic Museum have organized many activities and little shows for kids and adults who want to stare at the stars at night.

Finally a place that is seldom open and that we recommend you to hit Saturday night: Rome’s public transport company’s park with lots of historical trams and trains in Via Bartolomeo Bossi 7.


We are 100% sure you’re going to have fun!
