Experience London's most unique Friday night out! Dinosaurs included
Come and enjoy the Natural History Museum's exhibitions in the evening, meet friends, have a drink, have a bite to eat.
Visit their engrossing and atmospheric Dinosaur gallery. Or take part in one of their monthly discussions.
It's FREE to attend the After Hours evenings, but you have to buy tickets for the special events. To avoid disappointment, please book your tickets in advance.
What's on at After Hours in May 2014
Catch the Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story exhibition.
See the colossal creatures of the Mammoths: Ice Age Giants exhibition.
Take part in the lively Emotional Evolution discussion event.
Tour our popular galleries, including Dinosaurs, the Whale Hall, and Treasures.
Food and drink
Bar open from 18.00 until 22.00
Grab a tasty meatball parmigiana ciabatta, courgette, feta and mint fritters on flat bread, salads and more from our Central Hall menu. Then enjoy a selection of good quality wines, beers and ciders from the bar.
The food is really good, but not cheap, you won't get much for under a tenner so if you don't want to spend that, bring a sandwich.
Please note that drinks and food cannot be taken into the exhibitions and the Dinosaur gallery.
More info at the NHM After Hours page.
6pm - We will meet in the main cafeteria (not restaurant) behind the main huge central stairs, between 6pm and 6.45pm. Vlad will have a Meetup sign. (See photo section for map.)
7.00pm - Vlad is going to the Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story at 7pm. Tickets from: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/whats-on/temporary-exhibitions/britain-million-years/index.html
Unfortunately the Emotional Evolution Discussion is now sold out. :-(
Other splinter groups may go to dinosaurs, creepy crawlies or mammals gallery.
In our experience, its best if we all go off in smal groups, always leaving a few people at 'base camp'. This means it's easier to collect later arrivals and sometimes people just want to stay sitting, drinking, eating, listening to the live music and chatting for the evening and that's cool too.
9.00pm - Vlad will meet back at the cafeteria at 9.00pm for a final gathering together, and will remain there until 10.00pm
Vlad will email or post his number below at the latest the day before the event.
