Have you ever wanted to have a sleepover in the museum? Now’s your chance!

Astronights are our sleepovers for children and their parents/guardians, where you’ll get to explore the museum after dark. Enjoy out-of-this-world, space-inspired workshops, shows and activities, plus refuel the next morning with a delicious breakfast. Book now for a night like no other!

We now offer VIP tickets, to make your museum sleepover even more special! Astronights VIPs get:

  • Extra comfortable sleeping arrangements, with an airbed provided for every camper, and a reserved space in the sleeping gallery.
  • Special breakfast options, with more choice for everyone, and enhanced hot drinks for adults.
  • A dedicated VIP usher team to provide assistance and answer your questions.


Tickets will go off sale one week before each date.


Gift Vouchers

You can buy gift vouchers for both adults and children to attend Astronights, including VIP tickets. Gift vouchers for other museum favourites, including annual passes to our interactive galleries Power Up and Wonderlab: The Equinor Gallery, are also available.

Please ensure you check restrictions for Astronights before purchasing any gift vouchers.

Children with special educational 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.
