FlixBus discounts are 10% to 50% off when you purchase a ticket on a museum to museum basis, and a Flix & Art booklet will be created with a listing of all museum amenities and instructions.
The following museums are included in the Flix & Art project: Nikola Tesla Technical Museum, Croatian Museum of Naive Art, Museum of Contemporary Art, Mimara Museum, Museum of Hangovers, Museum of Arts and Crafts, Croatian Museum of School, the Ivan Mestrovic Museums in Zagreb and Split, Museum of Senses in Split, and the Croatian Maritime Museum Split.
Don’t forget, Museum Night will be held across Croatia on Friday, January 31, 2020. This year will be the fifteenth edition of the event that began in 2005 with several Zagreb museums. Over the past few years, it has become the most significant event in Croatian museums.
This year, Museum Night is commemorating two major anniversaries: the 200th anniversary of the Split Archeological Museum, founded in 1820, and the 140th anniversary of the Museum of Arts and Crafts in Zagreb, founded in 1880.
Thus, the theme of Museum Night 2020 will be an opportunity for Croatian museums to once again remind the general public about the importance of ‘museum history, present and future’. Communicating various content to the public – from museum collections, professional, scientific, educational and entertaining content to virtual tours of museum exhibits, historical buildings and protected heritage sites, and digital technologies have opened up unprecedented possibilities for presenting the museums.
