Usually museums remain open all night on May, 18. NOC Belarus joined the event 2 years ago. In 2019, many people came to NOC Belarus headquarters to see unique exhibits and participate at the Olympic Museum Night. A lot of famous Belarusian sportsmen, as well as Olympic champions and medalists became tour guides.

In 2019, more than 3400 people have visited the museum. The visitor were from different parts of society (students, workers, officials from Poland, China, Egypt, Germany, Ukraine and other countries).  

The Olympic museum is consistently replenished. For example in 2019, 60 objects were added to the collection. Most of them related to the 2nd European Games.
