Twilight with the Museums: Digital Sleepover

We've put together a whole range of activities which has everything you need to create your own museum sleepover - at home. 

Enjoy a special tale from renowned storyteller Wendy Shearer, explore the night sky with the Whipple Museum, join-in with some climate change karaoke from the Polar Museum, experience some 'spooky' encounters at the Sedgwick Museum, build your own den and more. 

In addition to a massive choice of pre-recorded and downloadable events and activities, you can also catch-up with TV presenters and YouTubers Maddie Moate & Greg Foot as they embarked on an interactive, twilight adventure to find the secrets of the mysterious Moonflower.

With so many activities to choose from, it's difficult to know where to start. Here's a selection you might want to try, and download our Guide to your Digital Sleepover for further inspiration.
