Dino Snores for Grown-ups

Arrive at Hintze Hall via our Cromwell Road entrance at 18.30 to set up your camp and enjoy a complimentary drink.

Receive a warm welcome at 19.00 when you will be assigned to one of three teams - Cambrian, Jurassic or Miocene. You will spend the evening taking part in three fantastic science shows and enjoying a delicious three-course meal.

The shows could be anything from live stand-up comedy to a drinks tasting where you’ll learn about the botanical ingredients of alcohol.

Later in the evening you’ll have time to explore the Museum, take part in more activities, enjoy live music entertainment, and have the chance to see our exhibitions and galleries after dark.

Team Cambrian and Team Jurassic will have dinner on arrival before their first activities, while Team Miocene will have most of their activities first and eat later in the evening.

Highlights include:
  • three-course dinner
  • full hot breakfast in the morning
  • sleeping in Hintze Hall under our iconic Diplodocus skeleton, Dippy
  • science shows
  • mystery drawing competition
  • access to our popular exhibitions, currently Wildlife Photographer of the Year
  • stand-up comedy
  • live music
  • edible insect tasting
  • seeing a selection of our galleries by night
