Night Owls

Night Owls enables young adults who have an Autism Spectrum Condition to come along and enjoy the Museum free from the hustle and bustle of the general public.

On selected Saturdays across the year we open the Museum exclusively to pre-booked Night Owls guests from 18.45 until 21.30. As well as the chance to explore the galleries, there are lots of fun workshops and exciting demonstrations to enjoy.

All of these events are completely free and suitable for young adults between the ages of 16–25.

When does the next Night Owls take place?

The next Night Owls evening is on 3 December 2016.

Booking opens at 10.00 on Friday 4 November 2016. See below for information about how to book. 

If you would like to receive a reminder that bookings are about to open, email familyprogrammes@sciencemuseum.ac.uk and we'll add you to our Night Owls mailing list.

Do I need to book?

The events are free but places are limited so booking is required. Call us on 0207 942 4000 – we'll take your details and send an email confirming your Night Owls places. 

Our booking lines are open 8.30am-6pm daily.

How do I cancel my Night Owls booking?

If you have already booked but are no longer able to attend, please let us know by calling 020 7942 4000 so that we can release your place to someone else. It helps if you include your booking reference number when you contact us.

What else do I need to know?

Once you have booked we will email you a detailed programme about the evening about a week ahead of your visit.

Not all areas of the Museum will be open during Night Owls. The areas that you will be able to explore will be described in the programme we send you.

What if I'm under 16?

Don't worry if you are under 16, we also have our Early Birds events which run on selected Saturdays throughout the year for younger visitors who have an Autism Spectrum Condition and their families.
