Organizers: “Grigore Antipa” National Museum of Natural History & National Peasant’s Museum
Programme: 6pm to 4am
Location: George Enescu Square (Romanian Athenaeum)
Rediscover the old-time charm of “Museums on the Boulevard”, on the Long Night of Museums, in a street labyrinth that the visitor is invited to travel through in order to discover the order of life in two joined worlds. The organizers invite us to “travel” or be “guided” through a Labyrinth leading us to the origins of life, as well as the origins of the two museums, through the known and obscure feasts of human beings and various animals, the museums’ collections, and symbols and signs known only by humans and butterflies. The labyrinth will be endowed with a system of signs and maps for guidance, the signs pointing to the permanent exhibition (the dialogue between the two museums), signs for additional spaces (the multimedia area, the temporary exhibition, activities for children, the entertainment area, the guests’ book area and info) and the exit. Children are awaited with stories about the labyrinth and drawing lessons in the specially organized children’s area.
6pm – Quartet Resonance concert; 9:30pm – Bourbon Jazz Unit concert
The “Labyrinth Museum” is also open to visitors on Sunday, May 15, between 10am and 5pm.
The National Peasant’s Museum also has in store, for film-lovers, a cinematic marathon. Thus, on Friday, May 13, between 7pm and midnight, and on Saturday, May 14, between 11am to 4pm, the public is invited to the New Cinema of the Romanian Director – Horia Bernea Studio (the Monetariei Street entrance), to see the best films of 2010.
