A night (and day) at the Museum

Museums At Night is an annual UK-wide celebration of the education and entertainment packed in to these invaluable buildings. The original goal was to diversify the museums and offer a more ‘adults only’ experience but this was quickly expanded to include activities for all ages and some specific family events, like Regents Park open theatre performance of Peter Pan.  It’s particularly significant in London, as the city boasts an incredible array of institutions with collections of artefacts and memorabilia stretching back through millions of years.

The Museums At Night festival is being held this year from 16th – 19th of May and includes invitations to explore some of amazing collections housed in London late in to the evening, including many that are completely free of charge.  By combining elements of childhood education with wonderful architecture and specialist activities there is something for everyone.

Museums At Night includes special events and projects to make the festival even more attractive to visitors of all ages and interests. This includes meet and greet sessions with resident artists in some of the hallowed museums of art, and opportunities to see behind the scenes at methodology for curating world famous collections.

The project is run by a charity We Are Culture24 which works tirelessly to bring people closer to culture through innovative and exclusive events and festivals.   “We are a small and dynamic team of writers, thinkers, producers and publishers who love arts and culture, understand digital and believe that cultural organisations have a vital place in a better world.”

The Merino Hospitality team thought this was the perfect opportunity to add a review of some of the best – and quirkiest – museums to our library of lively visitor information for London.   Stay tuned to next week’s blog for this list.

Remember though, it’s all a matter of personal taste. The trick is to find the one that most interests you. If you decide to come to London for Museum At Night you can make your own mind up which fascinating London establishment makes your top ten.

Just like our beautifully furnished serviced accommodation in London, the capital’s museums are always being updated and improved, so why not make a return visit to a long-standing favourite?  The festival also offers the opportunity to explore eclectic Museums all over the country.   What a great reason for a day-trip out of London.

Incidentally, if you wanted to see one of the locations for the film “A Night at the Museum”, then head to The British Museum.
