National History Museum

Night at the Museum

The 2006 film Night at the Museum sparked the idea of having our own Night at the National Museum and we organised the first event at short notice on 23 January 2007.  Since our first attempt, the event has become bigger and better each time, and is now presented every second year.  From the start our Night at the Museum event proved to be extremely popular, with sold-out shows every time. 

The displays will come alive again on Friday 18 September 2015.  There will be three sessions, each lasting 1½ hours, starting at 18:00, 20:00 and 22:00.  Tickets cost R40 for adults and R20 for children between 3 and 18 years old.  Boerewors rolls (R20) will be sold by Fractal, an ad-hoc committee of the Friends of Oliewenhuis Art Museum, to those waiting outside the National Museum.  Reserve your tickets by phoning the National Museum on 051 447 9609 or send an e-mail to shop [at] nasmus [dot] co [dot] za.
