The Nocturne invites you into the Joanneum Quarter and its surrounding courtyards. Spend an inspiring night in the spirit of the "Colours of Cooperation" conference theme. Meet friends and colleagues, stroll around, taste Styrian wine and food, visit the quarter's many exhibition spaces and enjoy the interactive programme.

Local museum professionals and partners of the ScienceCenter-Network from all over Austria will offer a selection of hands-on experiences. Enjoy contemplative wonders of nature, discover colour variations and try out historic hands-on exhibits. Explore the Austrian ScienceCenter-Network’s travelling exhibition "Interdependencies" and enjoy informal chats with scientists and exhibit designers. Short guided tours will be inviting you to the interface of science and arts with an exhibition by media artist Richard Kriesche.

And yes, for those of you who are football enthusiasts, we will make sure you won’t miss the opening game of the European championship.  

Completely redesigned in 2013, the Joanneum Quarter museum complex today houses the Natural History Museum and Neue Galerie, Graz and is a part of the Styrian-wide Universalmuseum Joanneum organisation. The history of the museum building dates back to the 15th century.
