The city of London is famous for its large number of interesting and informative museums, which cover a wide range of topics such as the history and culture of London and science and natural history. However, these museums attract large crowds of people in the daytime, especially on weekends, which can make exploring them a slow process as visitors are forced to fight their way through the crowds. Fortunately, many of the leading London museums are also open at night as part of the vibrant Culture24 festival.
The Culture24 festival takes place each May and features a whole host of special events staged in prominent galleries, museums and heritage sites scattered across the city of London. In addition to offering visitors plenty of time to explore the museums and other institutions of their choice, these events present various different historical and cultural aspects and really make the past come to life.
These events are set to appeal to people of all interests and from all walks of life. Art lovers will want to chance to meet artist Liu Ding in the Live Performance Room of the Tate Gallery. This vibrant evening will take place on May 16th from 20:00 and includes the chance to view some of the artist’s famous pieces as well as take part in a stimulating discussion.
Few people who have an interest in archaeology and a good sense of humor could resist the chance to take part in the program of special talks, tours and performances that will be held at the Museum of London as part of their Archaeological Archive by twilight event. Intended for an adult only audience, the event will take place on May 17th from 18:30 and will feature talented performers using historical artifacts to create humorous sketches.
In order to get the most out of the experience, visitors to the city will want to make sure that they get affordable London accommodation. This will allow them plenty of time to explore the visit the museums at your leisure without worrying about having to hurry home afterwards.
