Have you ever watched that Ben Stiller movie Night At The Museum? Well, now your kids can find out what really stalks the corridors of the British Museum after everybody's gone home for the night because they'll be locked up inside!

The evening will begin with some craft workshops and storytelling sessions where your kids will learn about the 'lost kingdoms' of Africa, South America and Asia. Then they'll get to settle down in the Egyptian and Assyrian galleries for a night's sleep, surrounded by the kings and gods of the ancient world.

In the morning they'll all be treated to a breakfast, followed by one last look around the galleries before the museum opens to the public.

Note: This event is suitable for children aged 8-15, and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

> Talk about this event

> Craig’s review of British Museum – “I always feel like a school kid walking round here, looking at all the broken bones and stones and pretending to be keen. "Yes, Miss... a piece of pottery from 1,000 BC. Amazing." Don't forget to tick them off on your sheet, she says. "When can we can we go home, Miss?" Not for another three hours, she says. "Oh Jesus Christ, are you serious?… continued”
