The origin of museum nights

Nowadays, events similar to Düsseldorf Night of the Museums happen all over the globe, but the concept began in Berlin in 1997 with a special night of extra-long opening hours at museums all over Berlin, with added entertainment. The idea soon spread to other German cities, and then began to be adopted abroad. Now, countless cities worldwide hold their own museum nights.
