Freebie Friday: Berlin's Long Night of Museums

It just feels naughty to visit museums after the sun has set. Even when they're open, it feels one's breaking some unspoken rule. And the later it gets, the bigger the fun, I've found.

That's certainly the case with Berlin's bi-annual Long Night of Museums which will be taking place on January 29 (and again Aug 27) from 7pm all the way until 2 am in the morning. The fun is ramped up even more by a myriad of one-night-only performances, both musical and theatrical, set in different venues around the city (along with a number of food fests) In all, over 100 museums will be participating.

I'm fudging a bit by including these fests in a Freebie Friday posting as there is a nominal fee for the evening (2.5 euros, 1.5 for those under 25). However, the shuttle that transports art-lovers from one institution is free.

Have a great weekend all!
