Tonight, Cork City opened its doors, literally. Museums, civic centers, theatres, galleries, the gaol (jail), and the observatory welcomed the public. We took a tour of the Cork Butter Museum. Bet you didn’t know that Cork City has a rich history of being a hub of butter exporting. For part of the 1800s, this was evidently the largest butter market in the world.
Cork Culture Night 2008 was a big deal and I only wish I had more time to get around to all the places. There was even an option to take the bus for free during certain hours, but still there was too much ground to cover. Maybe next time it will be a two-day event or an all-day thing, not just one evening. It wasn’t just Cork either, check out this piece, Culture Night goes nationwide tonight, from RTÉ.ie Entertainment: Culture Night goes nationwide tonight
