A big thank you to all those families and visitors who turned out in great numbers to make Twilight at the Museums 2015 such a huge success. Now in its ninth year, this annual event saw families set out with torches, glo-sticks and a quest for adventure, ready to explore their local museums after dark.
Over 10,000 visits were made across the evening with 13 museums and collections opening their doors for a variety of torch-lit and illuminated adventures. From taking a dip into the depths of the ocean at The Polar Museum’s Deep Sea Darkness event; stepping into the natural world of the Botanic Garden’s glowing glasshouses to some hands-on technical know-how at the Cambridge Museum of Technology there was plenty to see and do. Travelling between the museums was all part of the fun with torch-lit tours on offer, an ever changing light display outside the Fitzwilliam Museum and a breath taking fire performance courtesy of the Wildfire performers.
We look forward to seeing you all at next year’s Twilight at the Museums on Wednesday 17 February 2016, 4.30 – 8.30pm.
