Hot on the heels of Valentine’s Day, discover the naughtier side of the Museum of Classical Archaeology’s collection after hours. Uncover some of the saucy and amorous tales behind the sculptures through tours and a very special hunt - and see our iconic classical statues illuminated as you’ve never seen them before.

INTIMATE TOURS

Your chance to hear the stories museum staff don’t tell during daylight hours. In an intimate tour of some of our most celebrated sculptures, find out about the amorous side of classical art - and ask those questions you were always too embarrassed to ask…

SPECTACULAR LIGHTING

For the first time ever, see the Museum’s collection of iconic classical statues spectacularly lit up as you enjoy a drink on us and a cash bar.

A HUNT WITH A DIFFERENCE

Grab your friends and see if you can tackle our cheeky scavenger hunt. (Warning: may contain silliness.)

In order to keep the tours intimate, we ask that you book onto one of three tour start times when you book your ticket: 7.15, 7.50 + 8.30pm.

For adults only. £5 per person. Ticket price includes a complimentary drink.

***THIS EVENT IS NOW FULLY BOOKED***

This event is part of Cam Lates, a series of alternative after-hours events across the University of Cambridge Museums and Botanic Garden.
