Dino Snores for Kids
Ever wonder what happens in the Museum when everyone's gone home?
This unique sleepover gives kids aged seven to 11 the chance to explore the Museum after dark, take part in fun, educational activities and discover our T. rex hidden in the shadows of the Dinosaurs gallery.
What's on at Dino Snores for Kids?
The night begins as you set up camp in one of our spectacular galleries.
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.
- 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
Sleep under iconic exhibits
At midnight, it's time to settle down to sleep in one of our iconic galleries.
Rise and shine
The following morning, breakfast is served bright and early and will be followed by a live animal show before waving goodbye to the Museum.
As a memento, you can buy a Dino Snores for Kids goody bag, packed with fun activities and tasty treats including an educational dinosaur book, chocolate, toys, stationary and stickers.
Changes for 2017
From January until the summer of 2017, Hintze Hall will be closed while we work on a spectacular reimagining of this iconic national space.
During this time you will still be able to enjoy our Dino Snores for Kids events. Set up camp under one of our iconic exhibits such as the Stegosaurus in the Earth Hall or the Fossil Marine Reptiles gallery and roam the Dinosaurs gallery at night. Space will be limited so book now to secure your place.
