Sleepover at the Natural History Museum


Ever wondered what it would be like to sleep over at the Natural History Museum, overlooked by dinosaurs?

If you think sleepovers are just for kids, think again.

Luckily for the museum’s fans, this has been made possible with the launch of the increasingly popular ‘Dino Snores for grown Ups’ event. This is a fantastic way to not only explore the museum away from its heaving crowds at the weekends, but also take part in one of London’s quirkiest events.

Adventurous adults are invited to pack up their sleeping bags and head to the museum for 7.30pm on March 14th 2014 (the next event; booking required – visit their website for more details).

Visitors will be treated to a delicious three-course meal, followed by a host of activities throughout the museum.

Highlights include an all-night monster movie marathon, showing the best cinematic examples of nature gone wild; science show featuring gruesome forensics and the sex lives of insects; dinosaur-drawing class in the Darwin Centre; and a quiz at dinner with amazing prizes.

The ultimate highlight is sleeping under the hollow stare of the famous Diplodocus skeleton, dubbed ‘Dippy’.

There’s also a cash bar for those that need some Dutch courage, as well as live music and stand-up comedy performances.

There are also a range of special exhibitions to make the most of throughout the evening include the 50th Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition which showcases the very best nature photography from around the world and ‘Britain: One Million Years’ – detailing the dramatic story of ancient Britain, its changing landscapes and the people that lived here.

The Natural History Museum is located on Cromwell Road, in one of London’s most exclusive postcodes. If you’re looking to book a trip to London and want to take part in this exciting event, there are plenty of good value London hotel deals to make the most of.
