The Night of Museums was warm and bright in the Kaliningrad Amber Museum. The hosts presented a programme "Around the World in Six Hours" to their guests.
The event started with a flash mob, members of which lined up in the shape of plane and threw their paper planes. And meanwhile by the curved bridge that is located on the museum's territory, paper ships were sent to the lake. These actions were the beginning of the unforgettable night travel around the world.
The show lasted non-stop until 2 a.m.. In the museum's yard, the flights set off one after another – to Moscow, Cairo, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam... And on the board of the improvised airliner, there were concert acts dedicated to different countries of the world performed by Kaliningrad creative groups for passengers. There were merchants with Oriental sweets, souvenirs, fragrances and musicians playing ethnic compositions around the museum's fountain. Kaliningrad amber artists featured an improvised exhibition "Amber Coast of Russia" on the basement floor. Only on this night, besides the traditional museum expositions, visitors were able to see a unique exhibition of Polish coins and bank-notes gathered by Kaliningrad collector Leonid Kobyak – "100 years of Polish history in currency notes". It was organized with the support of the Polish Cultural Center in Kaliningrad.
Big interest was aroused with the lottery "Moment of luck" among the visitors, it was organized for guests who bought tickets to the programme "Around the World in Six Hours".
Prizes for winners were provided by the project partners: certificate for a visit of the Museum of History of Railway Transport of the Kaliningrad Branch RRW, certificated for purchase of presents in the designer works shop "Modigliani", discount coupons for taxi from the Kaliningrad Taxi Park, guide-books and book of Kaliningrad authors from the shop "Znanie" (shop chain "Knizhki & Knizhechki"), remote-controlled helicopter from the club of historical reconstruction "Arthur von Lifke", tours around the Kaliningrad oblast from the travel agencies "Yunona" and "Amber Mosaic", collectors' coins from the series "Cities of East Prussia" from the Kaliningrad Coins and Medals Yard.
