ViatorGuided tour of the Natural History Museum A visit to the Natural History Museum normally takes around 3 hours, but this small-group guided tour will save you time by focusing on the must-see exhibits
Have you ever wanted to re-live the movie Night At The Museum and find out what really stalks the corridors of the Natural History Museum at night? (No, me neither -- I'd be too scared!)
Well now's your chance to actually do it... because the Natural History Museum is putting on a special adult-only version of their popular 'Dino Snores for Kids' event.
This event is designed especially for grown-ups and will feature an all-night monster movie marathon, live music and a delicious three-course dinner (complete with edible insects, obviously). There may also be some comedy and a science show, depending on which date you choose.
When night-time comes you will bed down in one of the museum's galleries, before being woken with a cooked breakfast the next morning (assuming you don't get eaten by the dinosaurs in the middle of the night, of course).
Note: This event is for over 18s only (proof of age may be required), and it's not suitable for hen and stag parties. Frequently asked questions (like what you need to bring) can be found on their website.
