The British Museum - late night opening

  • Jul 26, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Come along on Friday 26th July at 6:30pm for a late night visit to the British Museum!

About the museum
The British Museum is dedicated to human history and culture. Its permanent collection, numbering some eight million works, is among the largest and most comprehensive in existence and originates from all continents, illustrating and documenting the story of human culture from its beginnings to the present.

The museum was established in 1753, largely based on the collections of the physician and scientist Sir Hans Sloane. The museum first opened to the public on 15 January 1759 in Montagu House in Bloomsbury, on the site of the current museum building. Its expansion over the following two and a half centuries was largely a result of an expanding British colonial footprint and has resulted in the creation of several branch institutions, the first being the British Museum (Natural History) in South Kensington in 1887.

The museum has free entry and is open to 8:30pm.

Afterwards we will head to the Plough pub, 27 Museum Street.


Lookout for the sign just inside the gates:

      Glad you enjoyed it, Michele! Also glad you were with others at the pub, even if you didn't realise about the upstairs room... sometimes small groups are the best! Hope to meet you at another event, soon!

      No Charlie I didn't, but spent quite a long time in the fascinating section on the history of Japan up on the top floor, well worth a visit.

      Hi Raffi... reading this now at midnight! You might like to make a note of Robert's mobile number for next time - he's really good at making himself available to answer questions & direct people when they are unable to attend on time! I hope you caught up & enjoyed it!

  • Meredith S.

    I was sorry not to meet up with people at the museum (due to a late finish at work) but it was lovely to catch up & meet new people at the Plough pub... it's a great venue with plenty of choices & there were so many people there! Good room & great atmosphere! Lovely to have a cool breeze through the windows too! Thanks Robert!
