Museums at NightThis annual campaign treats visitors to after-hours fun in some of London's finest museums, galleries and heritage sights. Expect twilight tours and midnight mystery in some of the most fascinating and historic locations the capital has to offer. The Museums at Night opens up our landmark museums for a weekend of special, exclusive viewings and events. Around 70 other venues take part including the Museum of London, Freud Museum, Courtauld Gallery, and Museum of Soho. If you think the idea of spending the night in a dusty old museum sounds a bit dull then think again, previous participants have enjoyed sunset hovercraft rides, live action cluedo, toy sleepovers and tunnel tours by lantern-light. In 2014, Grayson Perry, Spencer Tunick and Rankin are among the ten artists taking part in Connect10, a project which aims to bring artists, audiences and venues together to create unique events.

About Museum of London

Following a £20 million redesign, the five lower Galleries of Modern London take you through the history of the city from the Great Fire of London in 1666 to the present day.
