The veteran in city sleepovers, Science Night has been running for so long that some of the current staff first attended as children in the nineties. Activities are based around a different theme each month but a hands-on workshop, a science show, and an IMAX film are guaranteed.
After breakfast, once the doors are opened to the public, those exhausted by all the excitement head home to show off their creations but kids with energy to spare are free to explore the museum, including the 50 interactive exhibits in the Launchpad area and the dazzling Exploring Space Gallery.
Jonathan Ross and Prince Andrew are among those whose children have enjoyed a Science Museum sleepover and recent satisfied overnighters praised the event as 'better than we even dared imagine'.
Suitable for ages 7-13. One night a year is for Brownie groups only, ages 7-11. At least one adult per family group, see the website for school group requirements.
