Join us for Astronights and spend a night at the Science Museum with exclusive access to galleries after hours and the chance to sleep among our incredible objects.

This very special night takes Magic as its theme, and includes a special midnight movie screening.

Throughout the night you can take a look at our fantastic galleries and enjoy critically-acclaimed exhibitions away from the crowds.

You can also get creative with exciting hands-on workshops, play the part of a curator as we take you behind the scenes of our fabulously diverse collections, and explore one of our galleries by torchlight to see if magic brings the museum to life at night.

Included in the price is a free drink on arrival, a variety of street food for dinner and a hot breakfast the following morning.

Early booking is recommended as we expect demand to be high.
