The MNAT celebrates the Day and Night of the Museums with an intense program

7 May 2024

This Tuesday 7th of May the museums of Tarragona have presented a program expected for the International Museum Day, which will be on Saturday 18th of May, and this year coincides also with the celebration of the Night of the Museums. For the tenth consecutive year, the cultural institutions of the city have united to promote a joint itinerary between different museums and cultural centers, the "Journey to the Museum Constellation". In addition, as a novelty, museums have together published a leaflet with the program of the day, edited with the support of the Patronat Municipal de Turisme de Tarragona, which will be distributed from the different cultural sites. 

Journey to the Museum Constellation

With the coordination of Auriga Serveis Culturals, the itinerary "Journey to the Museum Constellation" will allow the public to visit eight museums in the city following the slogan chose by ICOM for this edition of the International Museum Day "Museums for Education and Research". On board of the little touristic train, this guided tour will focus in aspects related to research or education in every stop. In the case of MNAT, it will be an oportunity to deepen on the ongoing work of restoration being done at the museum, and the contributions this project provides on research and dissemination. 

There will be four different groups to carry on the itinerary during the afternoon and evening of the 18th of May. Departures will be at 17:30h (CaixaFòrum), 18:00h (Praetorius), 20:30h (CaixaFòrum) and 21:00h (Praetorius). The tickets, 5 euros each, will be available on Wednesday 8th of May at 09:00h on the MNAT website.
