Notte dei Musei - 14/15 May

Moving on from the snafus of Beatification/Labor Day on May 1, state-owned museums will be open *free* from 8 pm May 14 until 2 am May 15 (last admission at 1 am).

That's the good news. Now the bad news: there is, as of now, no list of the museums that will be participating in "Museums Night".

Any word on the Uffizi, Accademia, or Pittl in Florence for that night?

Does one still need a reservation for these museums on that night?

Florence has its own notte dei musei on a different date. Actually I think they just had it.

I think the date should be same all over Europe. In fact, we have planned to be in Florence by 14 May so that we can make use of the Night at Museum. I hope Academia and Uffizi are participating. Two years ago, we were in Nimes, France on the night at the museum- I think it was 16 May. It was a delightful experience.

Where can I find a list of participating museums?

I would remind that the Pantheon is always free (so is the Museo della Via Ostiense), so if one is in Rome these days one shouldn't "waste" the free night to go there.

ok, I had read something similar (but apparently different) on a florence blog so thought they have a different date. Apparently they do have the same date. More info should be on the Florence forums. But still, not all Europe has the same date. I know for example that Munich has its version in October.

This year's Notte dei Musei announcement:

beniculturali.it/mibac/export/MiBAC/sito-MiB…

Note that the list is very sparse at the moment and gives only special events in conjunction with Notte dei Musei, not the participating museums.

Last year's announcement:

beniculturali.it/mibac/export/MiBAC/sito-MiB…

"Notte dei Musei" is not the same as "Notte Bianca".
