Jewish institutions join European museums’ night


KRAKOW (JTA) – A number of Jewish museums and other cultural institutions across Europe will be participating in the annual European Night of the Museums.

The institutions will be open from dusk Saturday until the early morning hours Sunday as part of the museums’ night, which was founded in 2005 in conjunction with International Museum Day, May 18. More than 4,000 institutions in 40 countries took part last year, offering free entry and special programs for visitors.

This year, Jewish museums and other cultural institutions in Spain, Serbia, Russia, Slovakia, England, Poland, France, Lithuania and elsewhere will open their doors as part of the events.
