The Night of Museums on Saturday drew a record crowd of 329,174 people nationwide, double the number of the 164,000 visitors last year, a government official told public radio on Thursday.
Over 430 venues hosted 2,500 programmes nationwide, Péter Hoppál, the state secretary responsible for culture, told Kossuth Radio.
The number of visitors grew more in Budapest than in other localities, Hoppál said.
He welcomed the event’s ability to draw people who otherwise rarely attend museums.
