Düsseldorf - Once again, numerous guests were attracted by live bands, readings and tours through countless exhibitions to the museums of the city Düsseldorf. Using one ticket people were able to visit many museums and exhibitions on Saturday in Düsseldorf and gain insight into the artistic and cultural world of the state capital of North Rhine-Westphalia.
The center of the Night of Museums was the Grabbeplatz. For example, the Grabbeplatz was host to a new exhibition in the NRW art gallery. The new exhibition ?Society? by the American artist and director of the Düsseldorf art academy Rita McBride opened to the public for the first time at the Night of the Museums.
The place of remembrance and commemoration Düsseldorf on the Mühlenstraße dedicates itself in it's continous exhibition to the history of the city between 1933 and 1945. Aside from visiting the exhibition, visitors were able to listen to the ensemble six who were singing the timeless music of the Comedian Harmonists.
The picture frame museum von Conzen invited those who were interested into looking over the shoulder of a degree certified restorer as she worked on a piece of art. Conzen has the second largest collection of landscape paintings of Düsseldorf from the years 1585 to 1950 after the city museum.
The Heinrich Heine institution offered guides through the large Heine exhibition. Visitors were able to find lots of information on the most famous son of Düsseldorf.
In this year's version of the Night of Museums, visitors were once again able to use their tickets to use three Shuttlebus routes that drove from museum to museum.
The Night of Museums shows in a spectacular fashion that the state capital Düsseldorf has a large range of cultural exhibitions and events on offer. We await the next rendition of the Night of the Museums in the year 2017.
