You’re invited to join a wild expedition! Experience a fun-filled night at the Museum from your own home.


Here’s the plan:

- Set up camp, make your own binoculars, and get ready for a Museum adventure like no other.

 - Go behind the scenes to the Museum stores, to discover where insects, marine life, and endangered species are hiding. 

- Binoculars at the ready... join a live video call to a South African safari to spot some elephants!

 -Ever wondered what edible insects taste like?! Keep energy levels high and prepare Jungle Juice, Dirt Dessert, and Bug Grub *edible* snacks.

 - Explore land, sea and sky in our virtual Natural History gallery, before testing your knowledge in an online quiz. 

- Wind down and join a special bedtime yoga session – then return to camp to dream of majestical sea creatures, swimming freely in the ocean. 

- Wake up bright and early for birdwatching, before building bird feeders and butterfly seed bombs that will help protect and pollinate our land.
