Science Museum

Take one small step into the Science Museum for a giant night out at our Apollo Astronights sleepover.

This July, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo Moon landing, we invite you to a one-off, family-only, overnight space spectacular.

Discover what astronauts eat in space, hitch a ride and journey across the Moon in a lunar rover workshop or get hands-on in highly interactive drop-in sessions at this bumper sleepover. Plus, all the regular Astronights highlights will be here for you to enjoy including access to Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery and an opportunity to sit back and relax with a space film in our IMAX 3D Cinema. 

In addition to a packed schedule of space activities, each camper will receive a goody bag containing space-theme treats including limited edition pyjamas for the kids and NASA t-shirts for the adults.

Here is a taster of what shows and workshops to expect on the night. 

Children with special education needs

We want to make your night as relaxed as possible. Email us to discuss how we can support you and your group.

We run a SENsory Astronights once a year so that children with special educational needs can enjoy a night at the Museum in a quieter and less crowded environment.
