Galactic Night at the Museum

This exhibition is no longer on display at the Museum.

Calling all space invaders, star trekkers and aliens. Explore a galaxy, not so far away, in an astronomical after-hours adventure at Canterbury Museum.

Travel around the Sun, through the solar system and to the extremes of the the Milky Way in Galactic Night at the Museum. Dress up as your favourite space character or creature and solve the clues to find the mystery word. All correct entries from space cadets 16 years and under will go in the draw to win a prize from the Museum Store. Post your photo on the Museum Facebook page and you could also win a prize for being the best dressed in the galaxy.

The Museum Cafe will be open for thirst quenching drinks and energy-boosting snacks. Tired space explorers and parents will be able to rest in the Visitor Lounge and hear an exciting story of galactic discovery. Bring your light sabre or torch and, if you're under 14 years old, your parent or caregiver.

Free event; donations appreciated.
