Museums at Night
The Museums at Night festival explodes into life every May and October, with hundreds of exciting after-hours events taking place at cultural and heritage organisations all over the UK: find out what’s on in your area here. All are warmly invited to take part and benefit from the UK-wide PR campaign: here’s how to register event listings as part of the festival. A £40 donation to Museums at Night will also land you a stunning collectable – a limited edition print taken as part of a festival event by top photographer Rankin.
Show Me is all about the wonderful world of museums, galleries and archives. We love the objects held in their collections, the stories those objects tell and the games and films museums make. We created Show Me to help you discover, enjoy and learn about those things too.
