Museums At Night Weekend 2020

Museums at Night next explodes into life on Wednesday 15 through to Sunday 19 May 2019.

Twice a year, non-profit cultural publisher Culture24 invites all UK museums, galleries and heritage sites to throw open their doors after hours to showcase their treasures in unexpected ways.

Museums at Night is an opportunity for museums and galleries to come together around a single, simple campaign that is attractive to venues, audiences and the media. It’s a social experience, where visitors can get involved, delve deeper into fascinating subjects and perhaps enjoy a cocktail or two with friends.

Tickets are available for May festival events from January and for the October festival from June. We update our website 24/7 with the latest listings, and events are added right up to the festival week.

If you have a query regarding a specific event or want to book tickets, it’s best to contact the venue directly. Please use the search box to find your event, and click through to the venue’s contact details.

If you need any help during the festival, please contact Nick Stockman on 01273 523983 or Rosie Clarke on 01272 523982 or

To everyone involved in the festival, venues and visitors, we hope you have a wonderful time!

Museums at Night in May ties in with the European campaign, La Nuit Des Musées, and takes place on the weekend nearest to 18 May, International Museums Day.

The festival has grown rapidly since Culture24 took it over in 2009. The BBC covered the festival in 2014, led by an hour-long programme on the Saturday night hosted by Will Gompertz. See what happened in 2014.
