With Christmas over and winter truly behaving like winter, kids have a tendency to become a bit ‘fidgety’ in January. This has to be the perfect solution! On January 15th 2011, the Natural History Museum is holding a Dino Snores event, the first ever of a series of sleepovers at the popular museum.
Dino Snores will allow kids to explore the Natural History Museum outside its normal opening hours and take part in many exciting and educational activities. In short, this fun dinosaur themed event may be just the ticket to lift children’s spirits in mid-January.
London night activities have never been this much fun.
Luckily, the Dino Snore event is not exclusively for children. Adults who have a soft spot for our terrifying gigantic ancient ancestors, can accompany children on the sleepovers. The Dino Snores sleepover will consist of different, stimulating activities, including a torch lit tour of some of the museums most exciting and well-known galleries, including the department displaying the dinosaurs.
Gazing up at the monumental T-Rex will be made infinitely more thrilling when surrounded by shadows in the dead of night! Children will also have the chance to make a plastic dinosaur fossil to take home, as well as watching film screenings of these fascinating creatures.
For added authenticity and excitement, the Dino Snores sleepover takes place beneath the fossilized skeleton of Diplodocus in the Central Hall of the Museum. Breakfast and additional fun is served before the museum resumes its normal activities the following day.
The first of the Dino Snores series takes place on Saturday January 15th 2011 from 7.45pm to 9.30 am. Further Dino Snore sleepovers at the Natural History Museum are scheduled from February 18th to March 12th 2011. Tickets cost £46.00 per person for non-members of the museum. Groups must consist of a least five children with one accompanying adult.
