The 18th edition of Culture Night will take place on Friday 22 September 2023 and we are going to throw our doors open at 6pm so you can experience the Museum after dark. Explore our vibrant historical and cultural exhibitions, engage in hands-on activities for all the family. Kicking off Culture Night at 6pm are the dynamic Skills for Life students, who will launch their new music video BRAVE at 6pm: “This year’s music will show the world that you should give no matter how we struggle we should everything a go! Say what you want to say!”

A special treat for families awaits –  the fabulous medieval re-enactment group THE LAST PRINCE is back by popular demand and will populate the streets of Medieval Tralee so you can take your fun pictures, join in the fun and games of times gone by and celebrate Culture Night medieval style! You can also look forward to a permormance by the Kerry Ukrainian choir and join members of our MUSEUM CULTURE CLUB for a dazzling culture sharing dance performance in partnership with Siamsa Tire, the National Folk Theatre.
