After a long break, the monthly adults-only late night opening at the Science Museum resumes next month.
Each of the monthly late openings is themed, and Novembers’s will be all things to do with space, celebrating the final frontier. From rocket launch workshops and space object hunts to a Soyuz simulator.
There will also be all the regular events from live talks, music and the silent disco.
General admission to the museum for the Lates is free of charge, although there is also a VIP option which lets you in a bit earlier and includes a free drink and discount in the shop.
The first post-pandemic Science Museum Late takes place on Wednesday 24th November, and tickets should be booked here.
