STIB launches free transport for Museum Night Fever this weekend

Brussels, 26 February 2011 Museum Night Fever at the Museum of Natural Sciences.

STIB buses will run between Brussels museums for free on Saturday night as part of the Museum Night Fever celebrations taking over the capital. 

The STIB shuttle buses will run between 7:00 PM and 1:00 AM, with three different circuits connecting participating museums, the company announced on Monday. The night network Noctis will also be free for visitors wearing a Museum Night Fever bracelet.

Museum Night Fever opens up 29 Brussels museums until 1:00 AM on Saturday evening, promising exhibitions, performances and live music for all to enjoy.

“Young artists from all disciplines draw inspiration from the unparalleled collections and current exhibitions to transform the participating museums into their playground for the night,” the event description reads.  “Museum Night Fever allows emerging artists to experiment, and museums to try out new ways of interacting with their audience: both regular museum-goers and those who don’t go so often.”
