This is an extremely popular event so we have two different entry times (5pm and 6pm) to reduce queuing times. We recommend that you bring a torch as parts of the site can be very dark and wear suitable outdoor footwear. There may be some strobe lighting effects used.

Please note the Museum will be closed during the day time of Friday 27th October and will open at 5pm for the Halloween Spectacular.

We regret that we cannot accept Tesco Clubcard vouchers or 2-for-1 vouchers for our Halloween Spectacular event.

Some activities may be subject to change.
