Take a leap into the unknown and explore dozens of Cambridge museums and collections after dark.

Held every February half-term, Twilight at the Museums gives you the opportunity to experience museums and collections in Cambridge a different way. Come and discover somewhere new, unearth some remarkable objects and explore our spaces in torchlight. With free, drop-in activities and themed trails across the venues, there is always plenty for families to enjoy.

With many of the venues just a short walk apart, you can choose your own adventure: from fabulous fossils to a solar eclipse, neon objects to a dive beneath the ocean waves. What will you discover next?

Twilight 2019 will be held on Wednesday 13th February with the full programme available from January. In the meantime, keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter — or check back here for updates.
