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.

"Oh Jesus Christ, are you serious?… continued”
