Culture24 co-ordinates Museums at Night: this annual festival encourages a new audience to discover culture and heritage venues on their doorstep in a different light.
We will be opening the Museum on the evenings of Friday 16 and Saturday 17 May from 9.00pm - 11.00pm for booked visitors only. We will be providing guided walks through the Museum site, stopping to visit some of our houses and discover how the people who dwelt there in the past would have lived during the hours of dusk and darkness. How did they light the dark? What did they do in the evenings? What did the darkness mean to them?
