In Budapest, armbands granting entry to the events also allow discounts on the bike-share system Bubi and electric cars, as well as free-of-charge use of the buses and electric cars among the venues.
This year’s main ideas and highlighted topics are digitalization and travel. Maybe it is unnecessary to emphasize the importance and significance of these two points, since they define our age to a great extent.
Traveling became faster and cheaper over the past decades, bringing the treasures and values of faraway and exotic cultures within reach, while digitalization made almost everything that surrounds us searchable and even browsable from our homes: from works of art through the wonders of nature to the secrets of the cosmos.
This year Szombathely will be the leading city of the event. After Eger, Kecskemét, Debrecen and Pécs, a Western Transdanubian city gets the opportunity to take part in the Night of Museums as a prominent location.
About half a million artefacts are preserved in the collection of the Savaria Museum of Szombathely, for example one can find the largest collection of indigenous plants from the Pannonian Epoch there.
The Iseum is also an especially attractive location, where a large part of the Savarian Shrine of the goddess Isis can be admired.
See the list of the participating museums here.
