More Than 72 Thousand People Visited Museums During Museum Night
18 May (BNS)
The Museum Night held last Saturday drew 72 012 visitors to the 139 museums and monuments in Estonia. "Museums were open in all the counties and there were visitors in all the museums," one of the co-ordinators of the Museum Night, Epp Alatalu, told BNS.
"In small museums, such as the Jüri-Mardi Farm Museum in Järva County, visitors from farther away arrived before the museum night even started in order to be able to visit more museums," Alatalu said.
The highest visitor numbers were in big museums such as KUMU(art), Maarjamäe Hall (history), and Fat Margaret (maritime).
This year the museums were open one hour later, until 11 p.m. Despite rain and the Eurovision song contest taking place on the same evening, the number of museum visitors was higher than expected.
