Autumn Festival of Museums

The Autumn Festival of Museums was established in 2006. Since that time the MEMC has had the opportunity to organize the Festival nine times.

In 2013 a micro site was created to complement the MEMC’s website in order to serve the annual Festival’s needs; similarly to MEMC's main website the micro-site also won the title of ‘User Friendly Website’. Several options ensure convenient search for visitors: programmes can be searched according to region, town, topic of programme, point of time and free wordsearch. The website was made even more attractive with a webshop, continuous programme recommendations and news updates. The micro site is optimized for mobile devices in accordance with the requirements of the information society of the current time we live in. The modern design is in harmony with the pursuit of the Festival to transform the antiquated image museums tend to have.

In the year 2015, 150 museums with 1600 programmes participated in the series of events taking place over 7 weeks.  In the Autumn Festival of Museums in 2015 the programmes were visited by160 604 people.
