Museums at Night: On the Museum Mile

Thursday 15 May, 6-9pm

Visit the Hunterian for an evening viewing of the galleries and a selection of rarely seen archive materials to celebrate ‘Museums at Night 2014’ and London’s ‘Museum Mile’. Over two nights (15-16 May) many of the 13 Museums represented on a route stretching from Aldwych to Kings Cross will be opening their doors after-hours to the public and pre-booked walking tours run by ‘InMidtown’ will move between selected venues. Discover some of the many connections between the museums of the ‘Mile’ through the people and objects represented in their collections.

Free event. No booking is required to visit the Hunterian Museum but if numbers exceed the museum capacity, visitors may be turned away or asked to return later.

Places on the InMidtown tours are strictly limited and must be pre-booked. Information about these and other tours can be found at
Visit to find out about the other museums on the mile and their Museums at Night openings - pre-booking may be required for some venues and access may be limited due to size.
