Dare you to spend a spooky night at the Queensland Museum?
If you ever wondered what it would be like to be in a museum full of dinosaur skeletons, spiders and stuffed animals? Wonder no more!

Queensland Museum is opening their doors on Friday for any brave kids and adults to spend a spooky night at the Museum after the sun goes down. Those who love Harry Potter will have a magical evening with bubbling cauldrons and you can learn how to brew up some squelchy slime.

DJ Steph is in the foyer for a boogie and there will be face painting, entertainers, science shows and a gecko wildlife show.

You can even watch a taxidermist demonstrate how to revive a dead animal to look alive again, just like Frankenstein.

All the museum exhibitions are open including the new Monkeys: A Primate Story, Lost Creatures, Wild State and the Sparklab Scicentre.

Food and drink are available for purchase, including alcoholic drinks for the adults who need to steady their nerves.
