Astronights

Astronights has returned with a few changes to make your night at the museum safe and fun. 

If your child has ever wanted to explore the museum after dark, or if the idea of spending the night in one of our iconic galleries fills them with excitement, then they’ll love Astronights, our sleepover for children.

With workshops, shows and activities—rounded off with breakfast and an interactive science show to boost your morning energy—it will be a night they never forget.

Dates

Tickets will go off sale two weeks before each date.

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.
