      I know, Nancy, it was great fun, and yes, endlessly interesting. The staff were outstanding, unobtrusive and incredibly helpful. Altogether a wonderful jammy-packed event.

      I honestly think you would love this event, Carolyn. It was relaxed, incredibly interesting and such fun. You’re right, we did learn lots, too. For me, the NHM get it right every time.

    WOW! What a wonderful adventure. Enjoyed the photos-but would love to have had you post one of you and your friend in your dino outfits.

      It really was an amazing experience, Bonnie. We were loved every moment, and would definitely go again. Aha, the dino kit? I’ll post a photo on my Facebook timeline. It ended up being rather understated compared to many of the onsies we saw! 😀

    Hi Beth what a FANTASTIC night you had! I would love an experience like that but at least I could live vicariously through your blog. Thank you for your wonderful writing that had me right there in the Natural History Museum!

      Hi Jean, thank you for your lovely, kind comments. It was such a treat, we loved every second, and will go again at some point in the future to take advantage of the bits we missed. It’s amazing how quickly a night passes when one is having so much fun!

    What a beautiful treat! Thank you for sharing the lovely photos. I really enjoyed them. I remember visiting something similar in Frankfurt, the Sengkenberg Museum but to camp there overnight? Wow, it’s a dream and definitely one for my bucket list.

    What a thrilling night you and Jill must have had… the only thing to me that would have been equivalent would be spending the night in an abandoned Medieval castle!

      It truly was, Faith, we had such a fun time, and learned lots in the process. Having spent part of my childhood living in a Welsh castle I love your idea. It wasn’t medieval, though, so that could be the next adventure!

    This is brilliant, Beth – I want to hop on a plane (or, you know, a pterodactyl) right now!

    What a fantastic post, Beth! I’m so sorry I’m so late here. I’ve been itching to read this but kept getting side-tracked. I never imagined you could spend the whole night at the museum, and what an amazing experience it must have been. All those talks, experts and exhibits, i’d LOVE to do that. Thank you so much for telling us about it.
