The District’s beloved National Gallery of Art is bringing back a visitor favorite with the return of National Gallery Nights this fall.
“Have you ever wandered through a museum at night? It’s magical,” the National Gallery of Art tweeted on Monday.
On the second Thursday of September, October, and November, attendees can immerse themselves in magnificent artistic and cultural programs in the gallery’s East Building after hours from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Each month’s engaging program has its own theme and features a variety of interactive entertainment, including “live performances, artmaking, music, and pop-up talks,” according to a National Gallery press release. This year, themes include September 8th’s Homecoming, October 13th’s Trick or Treat, and November 10th’s Americana.
Though National Gallery Nights are free events, attendees must register to attend, with registrations opening one week prior to each event at 12 p.m. at nga.gov/nights.
However, for the first time, the gallery also release a “limited number” of tickets on its website at 10:00 a.m. on the day of each month’s event. A small number of tickets will be available at the door beginning at 5:30 p.m. the night of each event, as well, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Appetizers and beverages will be available for purchase at each event.
