Enjoy a monumental night’s sleep at the Museum this autumn.

Inspired by major new exhibition Celts: art and identity, these sleepovers are a thrilling way for Young Friends to experience the Museum after dark and learn about the 2,500 year old story of the Celts.

Activities include decorating your very own Celtic manuscript, training for battle in a Celtic warrior combat class and listening to the enchanting tales of fantastical creatures and brave fighters.

There is good availability for the sleepover on 24 – 25 October.
