The Universe of Water multimedia complex summarizes the outcomes of the international Museums At Night initiative


On the night of 19 May, the Universe of Water multimedia demonstration and exhibition complex traditionally participated in the international Museums At Night initiative. In 12 hours, 56 Shpalernaya st. was visited by 6,415 people.

The UN General Assembly announced the year 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements in honor of the law discovered by Dmitriy Mendeleev in 1869, therefore all museum programmes were devoted to the common theme: “Elements”. The Universe of Water staff prepared a special programme “It’s Elementary, Water’son!” revealing the mysteries of one of the Earth’s most enigmatic elements - water.

The guests could choose one of the two excursions: to the Water Tower or to the Universe of Water exhibition.

On that night, the atmosphere of magic and enchantment pervaded the museum area. The visitors were carried away by a fantastic world of the most entrancing and peculiar stories about water.

The guests of the Universe of Water found themselves on board of a “spaceship” and in “Professor Waterson’s laboratory”, created their own “happiness molecule”, put big questions to the “Water Oracle” and participated in the prize drawing and master classes.
