Night time Adventures!

This year, we’re having a full weekend of activities for Museums at Night, which takes place from 16-18 May. I’m very excited about the different events! We’ve split it up into the Thursday night for adults, and Friday and Saturday for families.

On the Thursday evening, Dunbar and District History Society are leading a torch-lit tour around Dunbar, finishing up in the Town House. If you want to find out a bit more about the hidden history of Dunbar, and a get a glimpse behind the scenes at the Town House, now’s your chance! Your can book a place by contacting the Town House on 01368 866030, or by visiting the museum. It’s suggested donation £2 per adult.

Also on the Thursday, we’re having a special late night opening at the John Gray Centre.Treasures by Twilight Downstairs in the library we’ll have some music and refreshments, plus you can browse the books as usual. In the Star Room, we’ve got some old-fashioned crafts you can try out, from quill writing to paper marbling. Upstairs in the museum, you can meet our Curator and handle some museum objects, as well as meeting the archivists and seeing some historic documents. There will also be behind the scenes tours of the archives, if you’ve ever wanted to know where we keep those things signed by Mary Queen of Scots! So a fun evening all round, just drop in and donate a few pounds and enjoy!

On Friday evening, we’re having a Bat Walk at Prestongrange Museum. Led by Bobby the Ranger, we’ll be using a Moth trap, searching for bats and finding out a bit more about the creatures that lurk around the museum in the dark! I’m afraid our bat walk is all sold out! If you have tickets already, see you there!!

On Saturday, we’re having two events at either end of the county. At John Gray Centre and John Muir’s Birthplace, families can come and get involved in some adventure stories! At the John Gray Centre, families will be given a quest to complete around the Centre, hearing different gruesome, exciting, weird and wonderful stories about local history and characters as they go along! In Dunbar, at the Birthplace, storytellers will lead families on an adventure around the museum with some rather unusual and surprising stories about Muir! At both places, we’ll also have a few freebies to give out, and you can borrow some library books to take home and immerse yourself in more adventure stories! Both events are drop in, £2 per family (donation). Both are from 7-9pm.

So, how does that all sound? Come prepared for your very own night-time adventure! See you there, I can’t wait!
