Minion-inspired evening is set to wow crowds

Have you ever wanted to experience the museum at night after the lights dim and the doors close? Well, now is your chance!

On Friday 16 May from 6pm, the Museum will come alive with all things science including arts and crafts, wacky science demonstrations, a family trail plus a 3D movie (from 7.30pm).

Visitors can search the galleries to discover all sorts of facts about the moon, create Despicable Me-inspired goggles, minion finger puppets or superimpose themselves into a rocket picture.

A Night at the Museum has been a popular attraction for families since it began in 2009.

“We’ve had a fantastic response to the event so far and lots of people have booked in,” said Events Assistant, Andrew Kuhne.

“It’s a chance to be creative with the displays and exhibits and allows visitors to see what the museum is like outside normal opening hours.

“As a Museum all about Welsh industry and innovation, it’ll be great for people to come along and experience something a bit different - an ideal event for the whole family to enjoy,” he added.

All activities start at 6pm and entry is £3.50pp (those under 3 go free). Booking in advance is required, contact (029) 2057 3600 to reserve your place.
