Explore After Dark

1 night. 2 museums. 100 beavers.beaver scout logo
It’s a voyage of discovery and adventure as beavers journey through two of Newcastle’s best museums - all before the sun goes down.

After dark is when the real fun begins - get our torches at the ready as it’s time to explore the exhibits once the museum closes!

We start our voyage through time at the Discovery Museum - ride the glass elevator, take part in water-play and climb aboard the ship Turbinia!

After a quick stop for pizza, we'll catch a ride to the Great North Museum (Hancock) and so the fun continues!

With an access all areas pass, we'll explore the Egyptian artefacts and then get hands on with the Romans. To top it all off, when the sun goes down, grab your torch as it's time for our very special night at the museum!
