Natural History Museum Late

The last Friday of each month the Natural History Museum has an after hours evening.  The museum is free to enter and in addition to the usual exhibits there will be an open mic session in the central hall.  The cafe and bar are also open until close.  The museum has a unique atmosphere during these late night sessions and is well worth a visit.

We’ll do a collection as per usual with a voluntary donation of £2 suggested, though you may prefer to donate to the museum.


Please arrive by 7pm to meet by the benches opposite the main entrance within the grounds of the museum.  

Steve says, With the weather forecast saying rain, meeting outside might be uncomfortable. How about meeting near "Dippy" by the Wooly Mammoth skull (Only one ever found in this country, discovered very close to my house). I'll be there from 6.30pm

    Splendid time really. I felt like a little boy again. I hope my enthusiasm wasn't too annoying.

      Not at all! It was good to go around exhibits I've seen a few times before and learn lots of new things about them.

      You weren't alone in that enthusiasm, Mihai. :D

    This was a rather unique experience for me. Having not visited the museum in 20 years, to my shame, it was all pretty fresh. The blue whale and the central hall were familiar, but the rest was definitely new to me after so long.

    I must admit that being able to buy and drink beer inside was a novelty, and the animatronic dinosaurs made for a wonderful treat. I almost felt like a child again.

      For the record, I did not drink beer when a child. ;)

    Dippy is the name for Diplodocus skeleton. The Mammoth skull is nearby?

  • Rumit S.

    Yes I agree with Steve we should meet inside due to the weather forecast. The meeting point can be Dippy the Mammoth Skull initially and later on the meeting point will be the bar :) If anyone needs to contact me then my number is[masked]

    For a science teacher - this place gives me a feeling of reverential respect mixed with awe. Bit like a religion really - but with real reasons!

    I've not been here for years, but have always had a soft spot for the museum. Dinosaurs and natural history were my first scientific loves.

    Rumit, please forgive me. I was so looking forward to this event but I'm going to be in Scotland that day.
