The program of the Night of Museums – 2021 was published in Novosibirsk. This year, 40 cultural sites of Novosibirsk are participating in the action. Among them, of course, is the Muse of Death
Life is returning to its usual rut, where, in addition to work and home, there are finally holidays again (just look at how they celebrated May 9 in Novosibirsk) and cultural events. In May, it is the traditional Night of Museums, which was forced to move online a year ago due to restrictions.
Then, according to the head of the regional Ministry of Culture Natalia Yaroslavtseva, about 50 thousand people watched the broadcast of the action. This year, museums are waiting for guests offline May 15-16 – the NGS chose the most interesting sites and made a program for the Night of Museums in Novosibirsk.
For a year, the cultural life in Novosibirsk almost froze: the authorities banned the holding of mass events due to the danger of the coronavirus. Therefore, some events missed by the spectacle of Novosibirsk take with a bang – the pandemonium alone on the fireworks on Victory Day is worth something.
The next such event should be the Night of Museums. According to the Minister of Culture of the Novosibirsk Region Natalya Yaroslavtseva, about 50 thousand people watched the online broadcast from Novosibirsk museums last year, so this year museums expect to see at least 10 thousand visitors in total – according to the most conservative estimates. 90 sites will work on the Night of Museums, the minister said: 40 in the city and 50 in the region.
The program in different museums starts at different times, but the official time of the action is from 6 pm to 2 am. If for some reason it is not possible to get into the museums, then this year there will again be an online broadcast of everything that happens with live feeds – it will be conducted on the YouTube channels of the Novosibirsk Museum and MER_I_Ya.
This year the Museum of Novosibirsk became the official coordinator of the action – all regional museums of the city are under its jurisdiction. A couple of museum sites will not work this year: at the first railway bridge in the City Principle park – due to the construction of the fourth bridge across the Ob, and the main museum building at 4 Obskaya – due to renovations. You can purchase a subscription to almost all other sites and go through them in the evening – it will cost 200 rubles. Admission without a subscription to each site costs 100 rubles, children under 7 years old – free.
According to the director of the museum, Elena Shchukina, its branches will cover the entire history of Novosibirsk – from the end of the 19th century to the present day. For the first time this year, the action will be hosted by the office of engineer G.M.Budagov on Bolshevistskaya, 7: a fair in the style of Novo-Nikolaevsk market squares is planned, and the exposition will tell about the history of the village of Bugry, which is still preserved on the territory of Novosibirsk. Moreover, the exposition was assembled by the residents themselves.
“This is a story that was in the attic yesterday, and today it is presented in the museum,” said Elena Shchukina.
This year, the museum’s program also involved partner sites. For example, the territory of the KKK them. Mayakovsky will be dedicated to the 60s: there will be an exhibition of retro technology, a retro cafe, a dance floor, a photo studio, a fashion show for ladies fashionable in the 60s and an actor’s read of the play of that time, and from 8 pm to midnight cult films of the 60s will be shown.
