Twilight at the museums

All are welcome to attend this event in Cambridge on Wednesday 18th February 2015 from
4.30 – 8.30pm.

It’s time to make the most of those long winter nights as museums and collections across the city open their doors for after dark fun. With thirteen venues offering an exciting range of drop-in and bookable events throughout the evening, there will be loads for families to see and explore. Why not take part in some torch-lit space exploration at the Whipple Museum; discover a world of deep sea darkness at The Polar Museum; or create some ‘Creatures of Twilight’ at the Museum of Cambridge?

The evening is all about fun and discovery and remember, the more places you visit, the more you will be able to see and do. Pick up a Twilight ‘What’s On’ guide and passport from participating venues to help you plan and record your journey.

So wrap up warm, grab a torch and get ready for adventure! More details can be found here:
