Late Night Museum Trips

If you’re not in the festive spirit yet then hopefully this post will give you hand. Recently my sister surprised my mum and I by coming to stay for a few days and we took the opportunity to have an afternoon and evening in London.

In amongst the twinkling trees lies the magnificent Natural History Museum and on the last friday of every month they have a light night opening with music, food and drink. The museum is free to enter although some of the exhibitions are ticketed.

We had booked tickets to go and view the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition; something that we visit every year and as always I was so impressed by the gorgeous photographs of the world and the animals around us. However I was rather disappointed that so many people were snapping photos on their smart phones – with a no photography rule and a lovely selection of postcards on sale it really ruined the atmosphere.

After the photography exhibition I pulled my mum and sister round the dinosaur display (secret dino geek) with the museum being open after hours I felt a little like I was in The Night at the Museum and was waiting for the skeletons to start moving.

A short walk down the road lit up by Harrods we nattered over orange hot chocolates in Costa before setting off home.

Are you feeling festive?
