Museum After Dark

Every Thursday in September and October 2020, the Museum will be opening its doors later than normal for special After Dark evening visits. 

This is the perfect opportunity to explore the Museum’s galleries and exhibitions during a quieter time without the crowds and enjoy a complimentary drink in our museum bar surrounded by London’s iconic historic busses and trams.

As well as enjoying this 'private view' of the galleries, guests will be able to take part in a pub-style quiz. The quiz will be repeated twice each evening at 19:15 and 20:15 in the Lower Deck bar area and participants can take part on a first come, first served basis. We recommend sipping a Routemaster cocktail while you’re there - it is a definite crowd pleaser. 

Date Theme Details
