Try something new, do something different! Join us for an adults-only night at the museum packed with live shows and experiments, talks, comedy, music and more.
What is Lates?
Lates is a free, adults-only night at the museum. Four times a year, we open our doors after hours and host a fantastic range of special guests, events and activities. Each Lates has a theme—they’ve included everything from space and music to the science of the future!
There’s always loads going on at Lates. You might find yourself enjoying live comedy or music, listening to a lightning talk from a scientist or artist, or getting involved in something creative. There are tours of our collection, live experiments, and opportunities to explore the museum’s galleries after dark...
Our café and bar will be open too, so you can grab some drinks and a bite to eat. Lates is a great way to meet people, share stories, have a laugh and experience something new!
