On Friday 19 and Saturday 20 May we will open our doors from 8.45pm for pre-booked visitors to experience our atmospheric Museum at Night guided walks.
These enchanting walks offer a truly out of the ordinary experience – you will be guided by lamplight to different spaces around the Museum, to hear a series of short night-time stories. Some will be amusing, some mysterious and some downright odd. Some are definitely not the stuff to ensure sweet dreams. Each story has a historical root, as truth is far stranger than fiction.
At the end of the evening, participants are invited gather around an open fire for a calming spiced warm drink of an alcoholic or non-alcoholic variety, plus a biscuit.
Not for the under 16s or the faint of heart. Tickets are limited and must be booked in advance.
Tickets are £25 each and can be booked online.
Guests should arrive at 8.45pm and meet at the Museum shop and ticket office for a prompt 9.00pm start. Walks will last approximately 2 hours.
Please note that there is limited seating in the Museum’s historic houses and the evening will involve an amount of walking on uneven surfaces.
