Museum Night 2017 in St. Petersburg, Part II
May 14, 2017 15:38

 More than 100 museums, libraries, parks and other venues of Saint Petersburg are taking part in the Museum Night this year. Even if you have an ardent desire to visit all of them in one night - it is unrealistic. But this is no reason to lose heart. Choose the ones that are most interesting for you, and go for it! Let's have a look at a historic shipyard, spend the night among the stars, and grasp the laws of macro and microcosm.

Museum Night at Museum of St. Petersburg Art of the 20th – 21st Centuries

Here you will see a few performances dedicated to the laws of macro- and microcosm. Concerts and performances will be on one theme - the interaction of external environment and a person’s internal condition. The exhibition "Amazons throughout Centuries" will give you a chance to figure out as to who they were: severe warriors or exemplary mothers? The exhibition "Tree of Traditions" will present works by Armenian artists.
