Ask a child what happens in a museum at night and they will tell you that they are full of magic. Scenes come to live, models and figure are animated to live out new adventures. For the majority of the year, kids can only dream about the world beyond those locked doors.

Some of the museums taking part are tailoring their night to families with treasure trails and other activities. So, this is the perfect excuse for kids to stay up late and learn something at the same time.
