The Natural History Museum is #18 in our London Bucket List

Have you ever seen the Ben Stiller movie Night At The Museum? Now your kids can find out what really stalks the corridors of the Natural History Museum after everyone's gone home and the doors have been shut... because they'll be sleeping inside

Exciting activities include a torch-lit tour of the galleries (watch out for T Rex moving in the dark!), a dinosaur T-shirt-making workshop, and an educational science show by one of the museum's scientists. The rest of the night will be spent sleeping in one of the atmospheric galleries.

Assuming that your kids survive the night (don't worry — they will!), they'll be woken up for a hearty breakfast before the museum opens to the public.

Dino Snores is suitable for children aged between 7 and 11. There must be a minimum of 5 children and 1 adult in your group. Frequently asked questions (like what they need to bring) can be found here.
