Cosy tents for two at Airbnb's DinoSnores Base Camp

1/10 Natural History Museum, London

The famous ‘Dinosnores’ experience is perfect for budding paleontologists and Horrible Histories lovers. Children aged 7-11 can relive the Hollywood favourite ‘Night at the Museum’ with exclusive entry after all the other guests have gone home. The evening kicks off with dino-themed t-shirt printing and an educational show presented by an expert scientist. As night falls, take the spook-factor up a notch with a torch-lit trail around the galleries and hallways, discovering the museum’s resident dinosaurs and menagerie of animals and historical figures. When the clock strikes midnight, bunk down in the main hall underneath the magnificent Blue Whale. The next morning enjoy a hot breakfast and start the day with a live animal show before the doors open for tourists. Kids can even win an extra special stay with a spot in the Air B’n’B Base Camp in the balcony above the grand hall.
