Night owls and culture vultures are being given exclusive access to Newcastle’s Borough Museum and Art Gallery.
The Brampton Park venue is throwing open its doors after hours to celebrate “Museums at Night”.
Nocturnal visitors can enjoy free activities and entertainment, which includes trails, balloon modelling and crafts, from 6pm to 9pm on Friday, 18th 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.
Teresa Fox-Wells, Heritage and Learning Officer, said: “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.
