About Twilight with the Museums

19 – 25 February 2024

This February half-term, local museums and collections are opening their doors for a series of free or low-cost, drop-in adventures and activities after dark. So, dress up warm, pack your torch and get ready for discovery.

Organised by the University of Cambridge Museums, ‘Twilight’ is a popular after-hours event for families where museums and collections across the city open their doors for after-hours fun. With bookable and drop-in activities and trails across the venues, there is plenty to enjoy.

Discover theatre performances, special lighting, darkened galleries, ‘dream cloud’ weaving and a range of hands-on activities to try.
