Night at the Museums 2009
The Museum of Cycladic Art in Athens will celebrate International Museum Day -- and Night -- on 16 and 17 May with a series of events, continuing a tradition begun in 2005 by the museum directorate of the French Ministry of Culture, which coordinates the celebration for Europe. This year's Night at the Museums is being staged under the auspices of the Council of Europe, the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and UNESCO. "Museums and Tourism" has been set as the topic for 2009.
On Saturday, 16 May, (18:30 to 01:00) the Museum of Cycladic Art will offer tours of its permanent collections, readings of Andersen's stories for adults, a music recital and various happenings and surprises.
On Sunday, 17 May, (11:00 to 18:00), visitors of all ages will be given a guided tour of the museum's collections. Children will be able to participate in drawing and craft workshops, meet Stargazer and get an introduction to the world of music. Sofia Gialouraki will present everything in the Museum of Cycladic Art, from A to Z. There will also be a bazaar for the duration of the events.
