Every year since 1977, ICOM organizes the International Museum Day on May 18th. The aim of this day is to raise awareness of the fact that museums are an important medium for cultural exchange and the enrichment of cultures.
After a year of pandemic that has affected us all, especially the world of culture, with serious economic, social and psychological repercussions, for this edition we could not find a better theme than “The future of museums: recovering and reimagining”.
In Barcelona, the Night of the Museums of Barcelona is already organized on May 15. European initiative since 2005, during this night from 07:00PM until 01:00AM different museums, centers and cultural spaces attached to the event will offer free access to their local.
More than 70 museums will open their doors for you to come and recover what the pandemic took from us. Museums such as La Pedrera, the Picasso Museum, the Palacio Güell, etc. Visit the official website for more information about the museums participating in this event.
With the Montjuïc Bike Tour we organize you can visit the National Art Museum of Catalonia but to fully enjoy this event nothing better than renting a bike and visit each museum or center as you wish.
Don’t forget, on May 15th the Night of the Museums in Barcelona and on May 18th the International Museums Day!
