when I grow up...

We are big kids in this house, especially after hearing about this new special event that the Natural History Museum, London is running. Called 'dino snores' it is the first sleepover that gives children the chance to explore the Museum outside of normal opening hours.

Dinosaur themed event
Part of the Nights at the Museum series of after hours events for both adults and children, Dino Snores at Natural History Museum is a dinosaur themed sleepover sure to appeal to youngsters who love the ancient giant lizards. The sleepover takes place beneath the fossilized skeleton of the Diplodocus that graces the Central Hall of the Museum.

Torch lit tour
Special events at the kids' sleepover includes a torch lit tour of some of the museum's famous galleries, including the wing housing the dinosaur displays. Kids have the chance to explore the corridors at night and marvel at the shadow cast by the Tyannosaurus rex, and Dino Snores at Natural History Museum also features film screenings and the opportunity to try out the new Sony PlayStation game InviZimals.

Bugs and breakfast
TV presenter and naturalist Nick Baker will also be on hand along with the museum's resident insect expert to host a live show about bugs and all things insect related. Dino Snores at Natural History Museum finishes with a breakfast and more fun events before the museum opens to the public on Sunday.

Dino Snores at the Natural History Museum takes place from 7pm - 9.50am, from Saturday 16th January 2010. Tickets cost £45.00 per child for non members of the museum. There must be a minimum of five children and one adult in your group; accompanying adults are free. The only downside is that children have to be aged from 8 - 11 years old, which means we have to wait a year and a half to take our little explorer!
