The Brampton Park venue is throwing open its doors after hours for the third year to celebrate “Museums at Night”.
Nocturnal visitors can enjoy free activities and entertainment, including trails, balloon modelling and crafts from 6pm to 9pm on Friday, 18 May.
They will meet Miss Mosley, the eccentric Victorian lady; Mrs Cross, the World War 2 housewife; Mr Worgan, the shop assistant; Dr. Mayer and Brampton Bear as they access areas not usually open to the public.
Families can also have fun at the “bizarre bazaar” which features traditional games such as hook a duck and lucky dip for just 50p a go and have their photographs taken wearing old fashioned costumes for £4.
Museums at Night, co-ordinated by Culture24, aims to encourage new audiences to view cultural venues on their doorstep in a different light.
Teresa Fox-Wells, Heritage and Learning Officer, said: “We’re very excited to be involved in this fantastic festival once again – it’s become a firm favourite with residents in our events calendar.
“There is something magical about being in a museum and art gallery at night-time. We’ve made sure there are lots of fun activities so that visitors have a night to remember.”
Admission is free.
