It may have been the subject of two questionable Ben Stiller movies, but that hasn’t stopped some of the UK’s greatest museums from opening their doors to a range of nocturnal activities during the Museums at Night weekend. Among the usual exhibitions, there’ll be further flights of fancy inspired by sleepovers, ghost hunts and talks from authors.
This year will also see 10 contemporary artists appear at museums across the country, with their destinations having been chosen according to public vote.
Among the artists involved are mischievous jellymongers Bompas & Parr (pictured), who are heading to Brunel's SS Great Britain in Bristol, the world's first luxury liner. It’s sure to be a night of sensory overload.
Museums at Night, 18-20 May, various museums around the UK.
