This weekend, hundreds of museums across the UK will open their doors in the evening to host special events and programs highlighting museum collections. You can explore the Museum of London‘s extensive archeological collection by candlelight, watch the 1950’s classic Invasion of the Body Snatchers at the Royal Observatory, or even sleepover at the Eastbury Manor House!
We LOVE museums here at Hot Key Books. Rarely a week goes by when someone isn’t gushing about a cool exhibit they saw, or some mind-blowing event they attended at a museum. So, to celebrate Museums at Night 2013, we’re going to spend this week talking about our favourite museums.
Today, I’m kicking off our week of museum blogs with a few videos from two museums that were instrumental in helping us put together THE HISTORY BEHIND THE QUIETNESS. The Foundling Museum and The Old Operating Theatre and Herb Garret are both holding their own amazing Museums at Night Events, so make sure you get those in your diary right now! Click here for info about the Foundling Museum event, and here for info about The Old Operating Theatre night.
Wondering what to expect at these museums? Here are a few videos from the curators to give you a taste of what’s inside:
