Dino Snores is for children aged 7-11 years old, but adults will enjoy it too. There must be a minimum of 5 children and 1 adult in your group.

In the evening, experience lots of thrilling activities and stalk the corridors as night descends and shrouds the huge hulking form of Tyrannosaurus rex in shadows. 

  • a torch-lit trail in our famous Dinosaurs gallery - watch out for T.rex moving silently in the dark!
  • a live show about creatures that bite and sting, Revenge of the Minibeasts, by our own Museum expert
  • Dino Design - create your own dinosaur on a T-shirt to take home
  • snuggling down at midnight after the excitement in the shadow of our Hintze Hall (formerly the Central Hall) Diplodocus skeleton for the night

The morning after, before the Museum opens its doors to the public, tuck into breakfast and enjoy more amusements including a live animal show with Animal Man Nick Spellman. Ogle owls and marvel at meerkats in the Museum's Hintze Hall (formerly the Central Hall).

You will also take home souvenirs of the night to show your pals and relatives. And, impress them with stories of how you fought off a ferocious Velociraptor – or was that just a dream?

We recommend you have a meal before attending and bring along a snack for later in the evening. A basic breakfast will be provided.

Group sizes 

When booking, please remember that each group absolutely must contain a minimum of five children and one accompanying adult

No exceptions will be made and if the accompanying adult arrives to the event with fewer than five children they may not be allowed entry. Our activities are designed for groups of five or more children to ensure maximum enjoyment and for the event to run smoothly for the hundreds of attendees. If we are sold out, there will not be an opportunity to add children or adults to existing groups. 

Please ensure there is at least one adult per five children and book early to avoid disappointment.
