European Night of Museums 2024: all venues open for 1 euro

Saturday 18 May special price ticket to visit the most beautiful places in and around Florence

The European Night of Museums 2024 returns on Saturday, May 18, and in Florence, too, it is possible to enter some of the city's most beautiful art venues by paying a symbolic ticket of 1 euro.

The initiative, which is taking place simultaneously throughout Europe, includes extraordinary evening openings and entry at the symbolic cost of 1 euro (where admission is charged) at the main museums, monumental complexes, parks and state-owned archaeological sites.

Many of the regional directorate's museums throughout Tuscany are participating in the initiative with a rich program of meetings and visits created with a focus on engaging a broad, cross-sectional audience.

Here is our in-depth look at the must-see museums in Florence!


  • Galleria dell'Accademia, open until 10pm with last admission at 9.15pm. Cost 1 euro.

  • Museo dell'Opera del Duomo, from 7 p.m., with last admission at 11 p.m., and closing at midnight.

  • Il Museo Nazionale del Bargello, dalle 8:15 alle 22 (dalle 19:00 in poi al costo simbolico di 1 euro)

  • Il Museo di Palazzo Davanzati dalle 13:15 alle 22 (dalle 19:00 in poi al costo simbolico di 1 euro)

  • National Archaeological Museum of Florence, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

  • Cenacolo of Andrea del Sarto, from 7pm to 10pm

  • Cloister of the Scalzo, 7pm to 10pm

  • Medici Villa della Petraia, 7pm to 10pm

  • Medici Villa of Cerreto Guidi and Historical Museum of Hunting and the Territory, from 7 to 9.30 pm

The Villa medicea of Poggio a Caiano, in the province of Prato, dedicates an entire evening to the little treasure chest of the Teatro delle Commedie, which a bill already passed by the Chamber of Deputies has included in the list of the 408 that will be able to have the coveted recognition of national monument of Italian theatres. At 8.50 p.m., a thematic tour by Marco Betti, an art historian specialising in the members of the Medici family who lived in the 17th century, tells the story of an extraordinary woman: Marguerite Louise d'Orléans. This is followed at 9.50 p.m., again in the Teatro delle Commedie, by a concert by Maestro Francesco Giannoni performed on the precious antique organ by Lorenzo Testa (1703), one of the few musical instruments of Medici origin that still exists today. In Pistoia, the Oratory of San Desiderio and the former Tau Church are open.
