Museums at Night
THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 16TH MAY 2015
Around 70 London venues typically take 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; previous participants have enjoyed sunset hovercraft rides, live action cluedo, toy sleepovers and tunnel tours by lantern-light. This year sees a number of leading London institutions taking part, including the British Library, hosting European Literature Nights; the Natural History Museum, which presents a Night Safari; The Supreme Court, giving a behind-the-scenes look at the highest court in the land; and the London Transport Museum, which presents an evening of illustration, trails and Pimm's to kick off The Prize For Illustration 2015.
