Runtime: 45 minutes

Sir David Attenborough will take you and your students on a nocturnal adventure through London’s famous Natural History Museum. When the last visitor leaves, the doors are locked and the world’s favourite naturalist roams the museum halls, encountering extinct creatures reborn in IMAX 3D. 

Attenborough’s favourite specimens from the museum include the dodo and the Diplodocus, but some new faces also make an appearance. Watch an ancient ichthyosaur circle the Central Hall, hide from the fearsome Haast’s eagle, and learn about the stories and myths surrounding the discovery and acquisition of each of these majestic creatures.

This collaboration between scientists, Natural History Museum curators and the world’s leading animation studios results in a spectacular, fun and enlightening film for students and teachers alike.
