Matisse all-nighter and late nights added

Due to popular demand, we have extended our opening hours in the final week of the show. The exhibition will open late every night from Tuesday 2 September, culminating in a 36-hour opening on the last weekend when we open our doors at 10.00 on Saturday 6 September and remain open through the night until 22.00 on Sunday 7 September.

A once-in-a-lifetime show glimpsed after hours at one of the world’s most iconic galleries - this promises to be a night to remember. Booking for these extended hours is now open and more information about the ‘all-nighter’ will be available soon.
