After Railway Night of Museums


Traditionally, a Railway Night of Museums took place in Engine Shed on 14th May. Like in the previous years, the event in the Shed was part of the city-wide event. The participants could travel between different facilities opened for visitors on that night with a special free-of-charge bus prepared by City Council. It is worth mentioning that when we started in 2010, we were the only cultural institution in Skierniewice open to the public during the Night of Museums.

This year’s edition was a logistic challenge mostly due to the very random weather. Most of the previous nights were usually organized outside, but this time we decided to prepare it indoors. We took care for interesting illumination which underlined the railway atmosphere of the shed. The major part of the main roundhouse was open to the public so even the large number of visitors did not prevented one from comfortable sightseeing. Despite the soggy weather, during the 4 evening hours we were visited by over 680 guests!
