I cordially greet you and congratulate you on the start of the annual action “Museum Night”. Today, all of Russia from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad will turn into a huge festive venue, united around museums.
Over the 13 years of its existence, the action has gained extraordinary popularity. Millions of people of all ages and hobbies, residents of all regions of the country, become guests of the Museum Night. Such demand has become a tangible result of the comprehensive modernization of the museum, the transformation of Russian museums from artifact repositories into modern cultural and educational spaces. And in this, of course, there is a huge merit of museum staff.
Dear Colleagues! Let me thank you for participating in the preparation of this grand event of all-Russian scale and congratulate you on your professional holiday - International Museum Day.
I wish you good health, new creative discoveries, success and well-being!
Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation V.R. Medina
