Twilight at the Museums

Twilight at the Museums

Get ready for destination exploration!

Every February, as darkness falls, museums and collections across the City open their doors for an exciting evening of FREE family exploration and adventure – all part of Twilight at the Museums, organised by the University of Cambridge Museums.

Taking place each year between 16:30 and 19:30 during spring half-term, families are invited to wrap up warm, grab a torch and set out to discover the extraordinary world of Cambridge museums and collections after dark. With a combination of free drop-in and bookable activities, outside entertainment and refreshments - there is loads for families to enjoy.

All the evening’s entertainment is listed in our annual Twilight What’s On. Available from the end of January onwards, copies are available from any participating venue, or keep an eye on the website, Facebook or Twitter for news and updates.
