The Long Night of Museums or the Night of Museums is a cultural event organized together by multiple museums and cultural institutions in a location during which the establishments remain open late into the night. Marketed together, the event seeks to introduce new individuals to the cultural institutions. A common entrance pass allows visitors to access all exhibits, as well as to access the public transportation required to reach these various locations.

The first Long Night of Museums took place in Berlin in 1997. The concept has been very well received, and since then the number of participating institutions and exhibitions has risen dramatically, spreading to over 120 other cities throughout Europe. The idea has been taken by others cities outside Europe such as here in Buenos Aires in Argentina, whose “La Noche de los Museos” (Night of Museums) has taken place since 2004.

During this special night visitors will be able to enjoy free guided visits, special exhibitions, as well as conferences, shows, theater performances, dance, screenings, video, multimedia, and diverse concerts of classical music, jazz, tango, folk, and rock.

In this new edition, the Museum Nights celebrates the designation of Buenos Aires by UNESCO as World Capital of the Book 2011 with 174 museums and cultural centers opening their doors in 27 neighborhoods of the city, setting  a new record number of participating institutions.
