If the mention of a trip to the museum makes you think of stuffy exhibitions and school trips, well think again. This year's Museums at Night (taking place Thur May 15 – Sat May 17 2014), a series of after-hours events at some of the capital's biggest museums and quirky attractions, is offering Londoners some seriously special one-off experiences. This May, you can discover Samuel Johnson's house by candlelight, solve a murder at Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archaeology or hunt ghosts at the Royal Artillery Museum.
