Museums at NightMore than 30 London venues are opening their doors late and taking part in this after-hours event which opens up our landmark museums for a weekend of special, exclusive viewings and events. If you think the idea of spending the night in a dusty old museum sounds a bit dull then Museums at Night will make you think again. Venues taking part this year include London Transport Museum, Apsley House, Benjamin Franklin House, the Freud Museum, Grant Museum of Zoology and Trinity Buoy Wharf where Pop-Up Opera visits for the first time with their new Mozart Double Bill. Kenwood House and Osterley House are also joining in with after-hours tours of these grand, stately homes.
