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 or explore the stars in our pop-up planetarium. 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.

Mobiloo facilities

On 8 December 2018 from 14.00 to 22.00,  a Mobiloo (pop-up Changing Places facility) will be available with hoist, adult sized changing bench and all else you’d expect to find in a fully accessible toilet. This will be parked on Imperial College Road, and can be accessed before you enter the museum.
