This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Museum of Classical Archaeology

Explore the Museum after dark and try out the Twilight trail.

Look closely in that shadowy corner, did something move? Rumour has it the statues have been known to come to life... The statues will be spectacularly lit in all colours of the rainbow, but you'll still need your torch for the shadowy corners!

Held every February half-term, Twilight at the Museums is a FREE after-hours event for families. Set out and discover local museums and collections in a completely new way. With darkened galleries for torch lit exploration and other hands-on activities throughout the evening, there are lots of things for families to enjoy.
