How it got started
The Croatian Museum Association has been doing a great job in organizing Museum Night in Croatia that started back in 2005. The pilot project started with six museums in Zagreb. In 2007 the idea has since grown and has become a national event. Over 70,000 visitors and more museums and cities become active in taking part of “Night of Museums” or “Noc Muzeja”. This event happens once a year and every year it seems to get bigger and better.

Every year is a different platform and program for Noc Muzeja. Every Museum and gallery taking part of Noc Muzeja carries part of the program to be one of Music and understanding its value to culture and History. The theme focusing on Music and the people that made an impact on society and influencing culture as well playing a role in the heritage of Croatia. The goal is to encourage young and old to take a look at the significance of collecting and preserving music as it represents culture as a whole. To investigate through the ages of the influence and trends music in the values of past, current and future. Understanding the art of music’s history following the time line of musical origins though-out the stages of development from classical, contemporary and the modern era.
The music just doesn’t just focus on Croatia alone it examines the global music scene from Icons of past and present. Music is continuous as it tells a story or an emotion of one’s life whether it be a wedding a party or even graduation. Music can also narrate in way of change in the world events from telling a story of the past such as folk-lore.
