Find Museums at Night events – and order printed Guides!

Museums at Night events are being registered in our database more quickly than ever – last week we passed the 200 event mark and today there are 270!

More are being added all the time, and if you know what your venue is planning to do, please log in to your record and add the listing now. Questions? Problems? Call me on 01273 623336 or email

We’ve also listened to feedback from people who found it difficult to search for Museums at Night events. Now, when you go to the main Museums at Night public-facing landing page, you can either search on a map, or use our special event search widget – simply select your UK region, and whether you’re looking for events on Friday 18, Saturday 19 or Sunday 20 May.

Finally, don’t forget that this is your one chance to order copies of BBC History Magazine’s printed Guide to Museums at Night. This brochure is our only UK-wide printed publicity, promoting the festival weekend through exciting advertorial writing and attractive images.

All venues who register a Museums at Night event will automatically receive a box of 100 brochures – but last year, several museums and galleries quickly distributed their 100 brochures and were disappointed to learn that they’d missed their chance to order more. Don’t miss out!

Think about what you might do with the Guides, which are A5 sized – as well as putting them out for visitors to your venue, to encourage them to return during Museums at Night weekend, could you place them in other local attractions, cafes, supermarkets or heritage sites?

To order more copies, simply fill in this form by 11am on Wednesday 4th April:
