With darkened galleries for torch lit exploration and other hands-on activities throughout the evening, there are lots of things for families to enjoy. 

With many of the venues just a short walk apart, you can choose your own adventure: from fabulous fossils to cosmic illuminations, Arctic adventurers to amazing animals. What will you discover next? 

This year, you can choose to explore even further with six additional venues in the wider region hosting special Twilight events.
