Last Saturday, September 30, was Museum Night at the Fries Museum. Visitors discovered the museum in the atmospheric evening light with a diverse and festive program. They enjoyed the most diverse exhibitions (from AI to the Frisian Vermeer), had their senses stimulated at the scent bar, got a quick course in culture with the special speed tours and still enjoyed danceable music in the museum hall until the late hours. Check out the photos of Museum Night at the Fries Museum below.
