Wave your wand, say ‘Abracadabra!’ and a whole world of wonderful wizarding treats awaits you this Halloween at the Museum. In this family friendly behind the scenes day there will be loads to see and do to keep your little monsters amused!

Follow our experts around the Galleries and find out some fiendishly fun facts. Discover some of the creepier objects in our collection and chat to the people behind the jars about the specimens.

Halloween is the perfect time for the Museum curators to bring out the icky, pickled and preserved things in jars for you to see. From a stingray to a slug – set your inner ghoul free!
