Spooky tales

Spine-chilling adventures in the depths of Sailortown

Ever wondered what happens in our museum once the doors are closed for the night?

Find out the terrifying truth as you trick-or-treat your way around the galleries after dark, and solve a spooky crime by torchlight with the help of a mysterious character.

Help us tell terrifying tales from Victorian London including the monstrous story of Dr. Jekyll, and the strange encounters at Sweeney Todd's barber shop during an interactive storytelling session.

Nestle down in the museum galleries for bed, before calming your nerves with a bright and early light breakfast and a family-friendly film in the morning.

Do you have what it takes to survive this special night of terrifying tales and activities?


Can children attend the sleepover by themselves?
No. All children must attend the event with an adult. If the adult attending is not the child’s or children parent then he/she will have to present a signed consent form prior to the event and when requested by the museum.

What is the ratio for children and adults?
For each booking we request 1 adult per 4 children.

Can I add people to my group?
Once you’ve paid for a booking you can add children or adults to your booking, space permitting, but if the event is sold out this will not be possible.

What do I need to do before the event?
If children are attending without their parent/guardian, then they must have a signed consent form from their parent or legal guardian. These will be provided by the museum once a booking has been made, and must be returned to the museum prior to the event.

Children without their parent/guardian in attendance and without a completed consent form will not be able to attend the event. All forms can be scanned and sent back to the museum via email to [email protected]

Is Night Owls just for kids?

Yes, the sleepover is just for kids and the adults accompanying them.
