In a Different Light (Word DOC, 52 Kb) tells the story of how the Pitt Rivers Museum and the Oxford University Museum of Natural History opened for one evening in May 2005 and 2006. (The museums also opened in May 2007). This enabled them to target an adult audience who might not otherwise visit and literally to show off the museum “in a different light”. This event was part of Museum and Galleries Month and the European initiative La Nuit des Musees.
