Science Museum

Night Owls enables young adults and adults to explore the museum in a relaxed environment 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 22.30. As well as the chance to explore the galleries, there are lots of fun workshops and exciting demonstrations to enjoy.

Some of the loud noises are turned off, there are quiet areas for those needing to take a break, and additional information is provided before attending a Night Owls event.

All of these events are completely free and suitable for those 16 and over.  

Saturday 8 December Night Owls

Our next Night Owls event is all about the Sun. There will be open access to galleries including our feature exhibition The Sun: Living With Our Star, as well as interactive galleries Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery and The Garden.

Catch a science show, hear from experts, explore the stars in our pop-up planetarium or get hands-on with animals at Zoolabs talks. Drop in to some workshops to make your own screenprint, get messy with soil or programme robots. 

Before the event you will receive a Visual Story and a programme outline with more details to help prepare you for your visit.
