Dino Snores for Kids

Fun for the whole family

This unique sleepover gives kids aged seven to 11 the chance to explore the Museum after dark while taking part in fun and educational activities.

Ever wonder what happens in the Museum when everyone's gone home?

The night begins as you set up camp in one of our spectacular galleries. Until June, these will include Earth Hall and the Fossil Marine Reptiles gallery. From July, you'll be among the first to camp under the spectacular blue whale skeleton in the newly redeveloped Hintze Hall.

Awesome activities

This action-packed night is not for the faint hearted, and there will be plenty to learn and discover during your stay at the Museum.

Stalk the galleries as night descends and find T. rex in hidden in shadows. You'll also have the chance to:

  • explore a torch-lit trail
  • get creative with a dinosaur t-shirt-making workshop
  • dig deeper with an educational science show presented by a Museum scientist

At midnight, it's time to settle down to sleep. In the morning, breakfast is served bright and early and you'll get to experience a live animal show before waving goodbye to the Museum when it opens to the public at 10.00.
