Museum Lates You've Never Heard Of

Thanks this is a brilliant list. Christie's is a new one to me and will definitely check it out soon. To add to the list:

Barts Pathology Museum is fascinating, it houses over 5,000 medical specimens in a beautiful glass roof Victorian museum. At present the museum is only open for special events and from Autumn through to Spring there are regular evening events. Their next event is Death & The Maiden with Art Macabre on Thursday 2 July 6pm. Events included talks, drawing classes, art exhibitions and silent film shows. Previous talks have included the Necropolis Railway, Death & Mourning in Victorian England, Jack the Ripper, and Sherlock Holmes. The events are ticketed and include in the admission price is a drink (usually wine, gin and tonic or cocktail). Before and after the main event there is time to look at the specimens. The museum also hosts Dead Meet, a networking site for death professionals, whose events are open to all. Events at Barts Pathology are very popular and sell out quickly. Here's the link

The Grant Museum of Zoology's Film Club nights are great fun. The next one is Empire of the Ants on Wednesday 8 July 2015 at 6.30pm. Their films follow a natural history type of theme and previous ones include a 1930s version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, One of our Dinosaurs is Missing. Before each film Professor Joe Cain gives a very entertaining short overview of the films plot and main characters. The audience are encouraged to cheer the hero, boo the villain, etc. The film show takes place in a lecture theatre and afterwards there's drinks and a private view of the museum. The evening is free and pre-booking is not required. Here's the link


Wow! The Brands Museum is closing and reopening in October? I planned to see it when I visited in September. Ugh!!!


Glaring omission of the National Portrait Gallery, open Thursday AND Friday lates. Free admission to the permanent collection, plus bars and DJs and occasional special events. Up the NPG ! And what about the British Library ? A bit staid maybe but they often have interesting special exhibitions such as the recent Gothic offering. And they are open on Tuesdays, which is nice.


Fantastic list! Thanks!
