A special night time adventure designed with our younger visitors in mind. Discover what happens at night when the Museum closes and see the dinosaurs before they go to bed.
Catch appearances by T-bone (our own teenage T. rex), make a fossil to take home, have your face painted, meet some live prehistoric-looking animals and much more.
Come dressed as your favourite dinosaur or palaeontologist and win some great prizes.
