Most of Moscow’s top museums are staying open late from tonight for all manner of after-hours fun. The Museums at Night initiative features an array of special night-time events, incorporate art, music, culture and heritage. Organisers behind the festival hope the extended hours, and novel activities, will encourage new audiences to explore Russia’s most renowned institutions.
Name a museum and it is almost certainly open: you can head to Kuskovo estate for a free concert, take a nighttime cycle ride till 2:30 in the morning, do breathing exercises in Krasnaya Presnaya Park, watch a concert battle between a jazz and classical orchestra by the fountain in Gorky Park, wander the halls of the Tretyakov Gallery until the clock strikes midnight and then catch Austrian DJs at Manezh Exhibition Hall until 5 in the morning.
Map of all events is available at Night’s official site: http://www.museumnight.org/karta_arta
