Museums at Night: Real magic

Explore the museum after-hours with a spellbinding evening of magic, witchcraft and enchantment!

Accompanying our Do you believe in magic? exhibition, this Museums at Night will be a chance to meet magical practitioners, discover different beliefs and contemplate how magic plays a part in your life.

And of course, don’t forget to visit our Do you believe in magic? exhibition. From ancient uses of witchcraft to belief in the power of gods and ancestors, the exhibition uncovers how magic has been used to heal, hunt and harm across the world.
