After a break last year, Museum Night Fever 2021 is back again with free visits to 29 museums hosting performances, music and other events.

The 2020 edition of Museum Night Fever did not take place as a result of the coronavirus crisis, because factors linked to social distancing and maximum capacity made the organisation of the event more complex not only logistically but also financially.

All visitors to any museum must provide a Covid Safe Ticket before entering the venues, and wearing face masks remains mandatory in certain museums.

Aside from the regular exhibitions, the night-time museum events will also include live performances and music, installations, dance, film, off-the-wall animations and meet-and-greets at various locations.

Once a ticket is purchased, the bracelet given for entry is valid for one more free visit in one of the participating museums until 15 November.

Brussels public transport operator STIB has set up shuttles to bring participants from one museum to another, while all Noctis buses are free with a museum pass.

One of the museums opening its doors during the night is the House of European History, which will open up its temporary exhibition Fake for Real: A history of forgery and falsification”.

The exhibition has several parts dedicated to fake news throughout history, including current examples of fake news during the coronavirus period.

The night starts early at 7:00 PM on Saturday (23 October) and ends after midnight at 1:00 AM. For a full list of the museums and the happenings there, click here.
