Museums at Night
Have you ever wondered what happens behind the scenes once the doors close at some of your favourite attractions? 31st October – 2nd November marks the Museums at Night festival – a chance to see a whole range of museums, galleries and heritage sites in a whole new light. As the lights go out, take your chance and take a peek at some of Hertfordshire’s most renowned museums as they throw open the doors and reveal spectacular displays and a whole host of exciting events.
Bring along your torch and a little bravery to the Natural History Museum Tring on 1st November. As the lights go out, the Museum transforms into a spectacular spooky trail, with real skeletons and plenty more. Round up your friends, dress up the family in ghoulish costumes and prepare to peek behind the scenes.
Yes, a talk from a museum curator all about the pub! St Albans Museum + Gallery is heading to their local (well, not literally) on 1st November with a talk from resident pub expert, Curator David Thorold on the history of the pub. Then it’s time to roll the dice with a talk from master of the board game (who knew that was a title), James Masters of Masters Games.

Venture into the great unknown at St Albans Cathedral this autumn with a journey to the moon and stars. In honour of the 50th anniversary of the Moon Landing this space themed Son -et Lumiere, will transform the Cathedral into an ethereal galaxy with light and music. With actual NASA imagery of the lunar surface, this awe-inspiring event is set to be so much more than one small step.
