The 2019 edition of Notte dei Musei is scheduled on Saturday 18 May, with the late opening of Rome's state, municipal and private-run museums, galleries, monuments and archaeological sites, from 20.00 until 02.00, with last entry at 01.00.
There is a symbolic entry fee of €1, which includes free performances of live music, theatre and dance, however certain venues such as participating foreign academies are completely free.
This is the 11th year that Italy has been involved in Museum Night which has taken place annually across Europe since 2005.
