On May 18, museums around the world celebrate their professional holiday. The International Day of Museums appeared on the calendar in 1977, when at a regular meeting of the ICOM the proposal of the Soviet organization to establish this holiday was accepted. And since 1978, this day has been celebrated annually in more than 150 countries. Only once a year, all museums in the world simultaneously open their doors to visitors at night, since the main motto of the "museum night" around the world is openness and accessibility for the audience. According to her, the main goal of the festive artistic and cultural action "Night at the Kasteev Museum" is to popularize different types of art (synthesis of arts) and to attract the attention of citizens to museum programs. "Night at the Museum" is a unique artistic and cultural event held by the Kasteev Museum annually on May 18 and timed to coincide with the International Museum Day.

So, at the "Night of the Kasteev Museum", since 2016, we have our own mascot of the project (a mascot character, a symbol of the Night of the Kateev Museum), which participates in all the events of the "Night" and is present in the event logo (see above), uniting the concepts of each from annual events. In 2018, the hashtag #kasteyevnight was activated, which gained a sufficient number of subscribers, reflecting the genuine interest of the audience in this event.

"Night at Kasteev Museum" is not only a favorite place of cultural leisure of Almaty residents, but also the largest art festival in Kazakhstan, which gathers from 5,000 to 10,000 guests annually. Fans of high-quality entertainment programs have not yet forgotten the previous "Nights" of 2016-19, and the organizers continue to delight visitors with new programs, which this year, as well as in 2020, will be held online.

Both our permanent partners and new creative teams join the annual action. This year's ONLINE visitors to the Kasteev Museum Night will see spectacular online events and video performances filmed specifically for the Night at the Kasteev Museum 2021 project: the Tribal Pro dance show, the Empire of Dance ballet school, the GAMI dance school, the pantomime theater S.
