Night of Museums event planned in Romanian villages
The National Museums Network (RNMR) plans to organize, starting next year, a Night of Museums event in local villages.
The first edition will target the museums, collections and memorial houses located in villages in the country.
“The first edition is to take place in 2023, probably in September and will target the museums, collections, and memorial houses in villages in Romania, some of them subordinated to public institutions, others in the private or non-profit sector,” RNMR explained.
The initiative aims to increase the awareness of museums in rural areas. These institutions can also take part in the main Night of Museums event held across the country.
The event will be developed in partnership with organizations that are active in promoting rural cultural patrimony and developed projects to benefit museums located in villages.
“At the same time, we aim to create cultural habits that will contribute to an increased tourist attractiveness of the rural area. There are many museums active in villages across Romania that few know about,” the RNMR announcement reads.
