If you thought sleepovers were just for kids, think again.

Join us after the Sun's gone down and let your inner child go wild for a night of fun and games at the Museum.

Not only will you get to sleep in the iconic Hintze Hall beneath the beloved blue whale, our grown-up guests will be treated to a three-course dinner as well as loads of awesome activities to keep you entertained all night.

You can look forward to:

  • access to selected galleries and temporary exhibitions
  • a live animal workshop with ethical handling company ZooLab
  • a decorate your own eye mask workshop
  • a science show
  • stand-up comedy
  • a live harpist
  • an all-night monster movie marathon

If that’s not enough to tempt you, cash bars will be serving drinks and nibbles until 00.45 and complimentary tea and coffee will be served from 21.00-02.30 and 7.00-9.30. In the morning you'll be served a full English breakfast with the chance to join a yoga session.

So grab your sleeping bag and don your favourite PJs, because our sleepovers are not to be missed!
