International Museum Day - celebrated worldwide every May 18th - will have a strong presence in Sitges, with a diverse program aimed at a wide audience, organized by Museums of Sitges. Open house day, children's and family activities, concerts and gastronomic offerings are just some of the featured events.
The classic Night of the Museums, which takes place in all major European cities, arrives on Friday 17th. It will be an ideal time to discover what the Cau Ferrat and the Maricel Museums are like when the sun goes down and the night begins. Both museums will open their doors free of charge from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. In addition, the evening will be accompanied by a selection of environmental music by historic female composers.
All throughout Saturday, May 18th, the Museums will offer an intense day of activities for all ages. From 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., the doors will be open to everyone who wants to come and visit. During the same time slot there will be a treasure hunt at the Maricel Museum, an activity for the whole family that can also be enjoyed the following day, Sunday. At 6 p.m. on Saturday, there will be two other activities: the family workshop From Maricel to Terramar. Trees, Flowers and Architecture – included in the events for the Terramar Centennial - at the Racó de la Calma (Quiet Corner), and the monographic route Savor the most Mediterranean Sitges, from the Museum to the Plate. On this route you will take a tour of the town’s seafaring past with a food tasting and cava at Can Falç, on the Paseo de la Ribera promenade. This activity, conducted in collaboration with the Sitges Fishermen's Association, has a price of 16 euros and tickets can be purchased online and at the Museums reception.
The International Museum Day celebrations will be brought to an end on Sunday, May 19th, with a concert by the Sitges Canta! Choir at 7:00 p.m. in the Maricel Palace’s Gold Room.
