The exhibition `Kunstwerk' Koln was highlighted as a major part of the `Die Lange Nacht der Museen' [the long night of the museums] when Koln has a celebratory evening for the visual arts organised by the City of Koln and sponsored by the Stadt Review.

over 90 museums, collections, cultural institutions and galleries will open their doors to visitors from 7 pm until 2 am, most of them offering specially organised program like exhibitions, discussions, live music, readings and movies in honour of the evening. Special shuttle busses divided in four different routes will link all the participating locations.

Almost all of Munich’ big museums participate with a broad variety of attractions: the Alte Pinakothek (old masters) and the Neue Pinakothek (from the19th century), the Pinakothek der Moderne (the new museum for modern arts with its spectacular architecture) the Deutsches Museum Verkehrszentrum (transport technology: steam locomotives, cars and bicycles), the Städtische Galerie im Lenbachhaus (the former villa of Franz von Lenbach, works by the artist group "Der Blaue Reiter."), the Alpines Museum des DAV, which invites the visitors to find out how the alps smell, but also smaller museums and galleries offer additional to their permanent exhibits lots of music (for instance: experimental music, jazz and classical music), theatre and parties, like e.g. the Hotel Bayerischer Hof, Munich’ finest hotel, which will host a big open end party in its Night Club with some of their most excellent musicians and DJ’s, A few of the museums offer a special programme for children (4-14 years) in the afternoon from 2 pm until 6 pm.
