Prague institutions gearing up for free Museums Night on Saturday

Museums in Prague are gearing up for the annual Museums Night, which takes place on Saturday. Some 69 buildings run by close to 40 institutions are taking part in the event, which gets underway at 19:00 and offers visitors a rare chance to view the venues by night. Special lectures, concerts, theatre and dance performances, film screenings and workshops are also being put on, organisers said on Tuesday. All the institutions will be offering free admission during the Museums Night, which this year is being held for the 11th time.
