The Long Night of Museums is a Berlin original. The museums invented it together with the city’s marketing department in the mid-90s, and the very first Long Night in February 1997 drew 6000 visitors to the 18 participating museums. In 2010 a study by the polling company Forsa showed that almost all Berliners (93%) are familiar with the idea of the Long Night. Until 2012 it even took place twice each year, in January and August.

In 2017, the museums and more than 32,000 visitors celebrated the anniversary of ’20 Years of Long Night’ with the title ‘Made in Berlin’.

2018 saw more than 35,000 visitors streaming into the 80 museums that participated.

in 2019 over 40,000 visitors* accepted the invitation of the 75 Berlin museums participating in the 39th edition.

In 2020, due to the COVID pandemic, the Long Night of Museums unfortunately had to be cancelled.
