Turn Me On/Off

Night Safari at the Natural History Museum

For every woman swooning over chocolates, roses, and candlelit dinners, there is another that can bare the Valentine’s Day romantics. Luckily, this 14th Febryary, the Natural History Museum has something in store for romantics and cynics alike.

Titled “Turn Me On” and “Turn Me Off”, the event allows guests to choose between two Valentine’s Night Safaris: one that focuses on the ways of romance in the animal world and an alternative that reveals nature’s darker side.

Die-hard romantics may prefer the “Turn Me On” tour, which showcases inspiring examples of romance in nature, from creatures of the deep sea swimming for their soul mates to the bizarre practices of chivalry in the beetle world.

If something more sinister lights your fire, go for the “Turn Me Off” tour, which incorporates the Museum’s most vile and dangerous specimens for the enjoyment of Valentine-skeptics. The route takes guests past flesh-eating beetles, carnivorous plants and parasitoid wasps, ensuring those heart-shaped chocolates and pink fluffy teddy bears are far from your mind.

At the end of the tour, guests can head to the pop-up bar for a drink and the chance to share their opposing experiences.

Admission is £28 for adults and £25 for members. There is limited space, so book early for a chance to see this unique display of romance (or lack thereof).

Doors open at 18.30 for a 19.00 start in the Central Hall at the Cromwell Road entrance.
