There’s a reason why late-night museum events are often so well-attended. The attractions become something unique and thrilling at night. With its Dino Snores sleepover programmes, The Natural History Museum is letting visitors turn up the thrill to eleven. Yes, they are giving you the opportunity to spend the night alongside dinosaurs!
Who said dinosaurs are only for kids and not grown-ups? The ‘Dino Snores for Grown-ups’ offers visitors the chance to camp out alongside the massive new titanosaur or spend the night beneath the museum’s famed blue whale in the Hintze Hall. A three-course meal and lots of activities to make the most of your time in the museum are planned for the sleepover.
Those who stay over can enjoy free entry to galleries, live performances, a monster movie marathon that runs all night, and more. Pub quiz, stand-up comedy, live animal shows, and dinosaur-themed board games are also on the agenda! You will be sleeping to the tune of the harp and waking up to dinosaur-themed music.
In addition to tea and coffee available late into the night and early in the morning, a pay bar will offer drinks and nibbles all night. You will then be offered a cooked breakfast and, if you’d like, the chance to enrol in a yoga class when you wake up. You can also browse through the gift shop and look for souvenirs to take home.

They have another sleepover which involves kids from age 7 to 11. A new Camp Stegosaurus experience is provided to ticket holders who purchase VIP (Very Important Palaeontologists) tickets for the Dino Snores for Kids events. In addition to everything else that the Dino Snores events currently provide, VIPs also receive a goodie bag, an evening snack break snack box, a cooked breakfast, and an animal handling demonstration in the morning. The highlight of the evening is when you retire to a camp bed in the designated camping area near Sophie the Stegosaurus.
Besides this, the museum also offers free events where you can meet the scientists. There are guided tours, yoga at the museum, silent disco, tai chi and other activities. The museum also offers paid events during Christmas, New Year, Halloween and Valentine’s Day. Additionally, they also have morning tours and you can take a morning visit to the Museum before the crowds of people arrive. A team of knowledgeable facilitators will help you explore a variety of galleries and activities.
