Night of the Museums will not take place in 2020

It has been clear for some time that the coronavirus will keep us busy for some time. Still, deep down there is hope that something like normalcy will soon return. But this requires renunciation. In the personal, professional and cultural spheres. It hurts - but if we all stick together, this crisis will pass. That's why - sad as it may be - it's absolutely essential that major events are cancelled until further notice. This also applies to the popular Night of the Museums, which was to take place in Frankfurt and Offenbach on 25 April. this has now been cancelled. Due to the current situation caused by the effects of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the planning for this year's Kulturnacht will be discontinued.

Head of the Department of Culture Ina Hartwig said about this decision: "At this point in time, it is not foreseeable to what extent the spread of the coronavirus can be contained by the end of April. We regret the cancellation very much, but the health of all participants and our visitors is our first priority. To the staff of the contributing museums who have already prepared the evening's program, I thank you for your dedication."

Moving the Night of the Museums to a later date this year is conceivable; however, for now, we will have to wait and see how the situation develops.
