A free theatre show will be presented from 6 pm to 8:30 pm (a show every half hour), following which the Museum will be open to all, free of charge, until 9:30 pm.

Plot of the show: A burglar sneaks into the Museum at night, intent on finding valuables. What he doesn't know is that this is the night when all the historical characters come to life and try to escape... Our burglar won't forget his attempt at larceny in a hurry!
