Museum Night fever: Brussels to host 15th edition in October

The "Museum Night Fever" event will return to Brussels on October 22 for a 15th edition, organizers said this Wednesday 28 September. In total, 34 museums will open their doors to the general public from 7 PM to 1 AM.

Visitors will once again be able to "create their original journey through a hundred artistic activities, the result of links forged between young multidisciplinary talents, collectives or art schools and museum teams", assures the organization. .

Participants will be able to go to "La Maison du Roi" (King's House) to challenge a horde of demons in the pay of the terrible beast slain by Saint-Michel. The staging will be performed by students from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels (Arba).

The Museum of Natural Sciences will offer a "Jurassic Jazz", skilfully orchestrated by young people from the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel (KCB) who will resonate there.

The pluridisciplinary space where art & clubbing collide "C12" will throw an afterparty from 11 PM. Brussels public transport company Stib will make sure there are shuttles circulating throughout the evening to reach the various participating locations.

This 15th edition will give a place of honour to artists from the LGBTQIA+ community, in order "to give pride of place to their talents and messages, which are still underrepresented in the usual programming of museums", specifies the organization. Their creations will be visible, among others, at the Musée de l'Armée (Royal military museum), at the Cinematek or at Train World.

The "Museum Night fever" attracted 17,000 people in 2019 and 12,000 in 2021. The event had to be canceled in 2020 due to coronavirus.
