Museums and collections


Twilight at the Museums 2017 saw families and visitors turn out in their thousands to light up the museums and make new discoveries. Now in its eleventh year, this annual event encourages families set out with torches, glo-sticks and a quest for adventure, ready to explore their local museums after dark.

This year’s Twilight saw 12 museums and collections opening their doors for a variety of family friendly pursuits. From discovering gruesome gargoyles at All Saints Church, a whirlwind adventure with art at the Fitzwilliam Museum, to exploring the botanical world of India in the Botanic Garden’s specially lit Glasshouses, there was plenty to see and do. And while the weather might not have been perfect (well, it was February after all) there was all sorts of outdoor entertainment and pop-up food stalls to chase away the winter blues.

We’re are already looking forward to Twilight 2018 and hope that you are too. Mark the date in your diary – Tuesday 13 February, 4.30-7.30pm - and look out for updates on our website, Twitter and Facebook.

In the meantime, to get you in the mood here’s what Twilight is all about…
