The Humboldt Forum invites you on  the Lange Nacht der Museen for an individual journey through space and time with atmospheric lighting and DJ Set.

This year the Humboldt Forum is part of the Berlin Lange Nacht der Museen (Long Night of Museums). The Humboldt Forum looks forward to your visit from 6 pm.
After dusk you will enter the Schlüter Courtyard through portals illuminated in rainbow colours, which as always invites you to stay a while. Even from afar, you will be able to see a concert of light casting its beams into the Berlin night sky. The air-conditioned foyer invites you to dance or chill to the rhythms of DJ Jeff during this long night. Enjoy a digital sea of colours played out for you by our Kosmograf.

Get to know the entire venue in one long night: All four actors open their doors for you. At the Humboldt Forum you can expect programmes by the Stiftung Humboldt Forum im Berliner Schloss, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin with the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst, as well as the Stadtmuseum Berlin and the Humboldt University.

Connect with the model of the globe in BERLIN GLOBAL on an interactive tour during the Lange Nacht der Museen and experience how the city and its people are connected to the world – then and now. Or find answers to the question of how climate change, species extinction and the crisis of democracy are related in the Humboldt Lab’s exhibition After Nature.
The exhibitions from the Ethnologisches Museum and the Museum für Asiatische Kunst of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin offer yet again different views into the past and present cultures of Africa, Asia and Oceania. The temporary Songlines: Tracking the Seven Sisters exhibition tells the story of one of the central creation myths of the Australian continent. The legend of the Seven Sisters tells of seven women who cleverly and cunningly elude a male pursuer with magical powers and cross three deserts on their flight.

Descend to the remains of the historic wall of the Berlin Palace. Here you will find the oldest evidence of the History of the Site. The exhibition offers a tour from the Middle Ages to the present. In the Sculpture Hall you will find the original sculptures of the historic palace façade. The video panorama offers you a comprehensive audiovisual overview of the History of the Site!
Also experience a spectacular view over the rooftops of Berlin: The roof terrace is accessible until 8pm during the Lange Nacht der Museen. The visitor service staff can assist you in the staircase hall.

All information on group meeting points and other programme items can be found on site!
