Museum’s at Night encourages UK museums, galleries and heritage sites throw open their doors after hours to showcase their collections in unexpected ways.

The museum in Wilton Park is planning atmospheric torchlight tours of the galleries to show off its treasures.

In keeping with the ‘Starry, Starry Night’ theme, there will be children’s crafts looking at stars, the solar system and constellations and a special trail through the museum.  In addition, the neighbouring observatory will be open for visitors to have a look at the evening skies through a telescope.

The event is from 7pm to 9pm and costs £2 per adult and £1 per child. Places cab be booked by contacting Bagshaw Museum on 01924 324765.
