Museums at Night

Cancelled
Free

The Museums at Night event has now been permanently retired from service. Fortunately, there are plenty of museum lates to choose from these days.

From evenings at Keats’ House to candle-lit architectural tours, this is an opportunity to see the museums of London in a whole new light. Inspired by the European La Nuit des Musées and held on the weekend nearest to National Museum Day on May 18th, it is a celebration of all things educational and has grown massively since beginning.

Now, there are over 500 participating venues across the UK with over 700 events and 10,000 visitors each year. Some of the events are free, including the Festival as Ritual at the British Music Experience, Heart/Homeless at the P21 gallery, the RNC Debate on dementia as a social care issue, Catch Your Breath at the Royal College of Physicians, the Menopause Cafe at the Royal College of Nursing Library and The Great Exhibition Raod Festival at Imperial College London.

Other events range from £4 to £30, with many at around £10 per person. There are fashion exhibitons, a pub quiz, lectures, talks and debates about a whole range of subject from lingerie to canals, so there will be something for pretty much everyone.
