Come to an exciting sleepover looking at the history of art inspired by the exhibition Rodin and the art of ancient Greece.

Through craft workshops, participatory activities and storytelling sessions, families will learn how different cultures have influenced art, and how artists throughout history have taken inspiration from the past.

Explore the British Museum at night and learn the stories behind cave art, discover how movement inspired Rodin and make your own artistic creations.
At the end of the evening families will spend the night sleeping in the Egyptian and Assyrian galleries surrounded by kings and gods from the ancient world. In the morning there will be breakfast and a chance to visit the exhibition Rodin and the art of ancient Greece.

Please note there must be 1 adult for every 4 children attending the event
