The Secrets Of The Statues: A Torch-Lit Adventure

Look closely in that shadowy corner, did something move? Rumour has it the statues have been known to come to life... Explore the Museum after dark and try out the Twilight trail. The statues will be spectacularly lit in all colours of the rainbow... but you'll still need your torch for the shadowy corners!


This event is part of Twilight at the Museums. Held every February half-term, Twilight at the Museums is a FREE after-hours event for families. Discover 15 local museums and collections in Cambridge in a completely new way. With darkened galleries for torch lit exploration and other hands-on activities throughout the evening, there are lots of things for families to enjoy.
