Great North Nights: Science Uncovered

We're opening late so grab a drink, explore the museum and meet a scientist.

Visitor information




Throughout the museum


Donations welcome (free entry). Drop in throughout the evening, no booking required.


Why don't you do something cutting edge to kick off the weekend?

Across the continent, Friday 29 September is European Researchers' Night so we thought we'd open the museum late and fill it with some of the North East's sharpest minds: scientists, thinkers, doers and fun-lovers.

Researchers are the innovators and the risk-takers, pushing the boundaries of what we know and what's possible. Grab a drink at the bar and chat with one about the burning issues of the day. Explore the museum. Meet a curator. Be the subject of ground-breaking current research. Be different.

Science Uncovered has been a big hit at London's Natural History Museum for years and our inaugural event in 2016 attracted 1000 visitors.

You're in the know - invite a friend on Facebook and we'll see you at the bar.

The theme this year is 'Oceans' - more information coming soon.
